Twenty Things We Should Say More Often (Part 10)

say 10

Today we are going to talk about #12 on our list of things we should say more often.

Everything is going to be OK

People like to feel comfortable.  People like it when life runs smoothly.  When life does not run smoothly and hard things come to us in life, we tend to feel uncomfortable and uneasy.  None of us like to feel that way.

When these times come, people want to be comforted by others and get reassurance that it will be OK.  That is where we can step in and be that comforting statement that can help pull another person out of their own pit.  We can provide reassurance where there was doubt.  We can be a rock for them to lean on as they are trying to get back on their feet again.

When bad things come, trouble seems to be magnified when you are in the middle of it.  It can seem like the trouble will never go away.  The truth is that all things do pass and life will become normal again.  There really will be better days ahead.  Sometimes it just takes a reminder from someone who is not in the middle of the stuff to keep that in perspective.

Our assignment this week is to find someone who seems to be struggling with something in their life.  Ask them how things are going and give them an opportunity to share with you about what is going on in their lives.  Don’t try to solve their problems, just listen to them.  Once they have shared what they wanted to share with you, empathize with them and tell them that everything is going to be OK.  If it is appropriate, give them a hug after you tell them this.  Doing this simple thing can make a huge difference in a person’s life.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
