I was thinking about different ways that myself and others could give hope to those who don't feel like they have any left.
And then it hit me. Like this.
I suggest that everyone who reads this post does their best to make a resolution from this point forward. If you see somebody on the street or wherever and your eyes meet, I want you to smile. It's an easy action, doesn't cost anything, and barely takes any effort. And that one effortless action can make a WORLD of difference to a person who's feeling down.
If you don't believe me, read the excerpt below:

So please don't ever underestimate the power of a simple smile. It could very well make a difference.
Another thing that can be done to give hope is to give someone a random compliment. It could be anything.
Nice shirt, you look really pretty, your hair looks amazing, etc.
Anything, anything at all to make that person feel a little bit special and noticed. It's really just that simple. The rate of suicides continue to grow each year.
Please spread the word and spread hope.
Lots of love <3
