I was sitting at the restaurant, having breakfast with my cohorts. A text came up. The person could not attend the meeting, because they had a fever. The weather was awful. They were probably feeling a little run down. There was something going around.
My reply was of encouragement. I wanted them to feel better. When we are at low points in our lives, we can reach out for help or let others know that we are not feeling well.
Some people pretend as if everything is okay. On the inside they may be hurting. It is beneficial if they seek out the help of others. We are created to be social. It is unnatural to be alone.
My friend had a physical illness. Some people carry around and emotional illness. It is okay to ask for help. It is not a great idea to infect others with negativity. It is best to stay away from those that are negative. It is not a win for you or the other person when they have an emotional fever and want to infect you, as well.
