Thankfulness 1

Today, it crosses my mind just how grateful I am that I have friends.

Many of them are here. They may not know it, but they give me a reason to care, a reason to keep going, even a reason to think about someone's problems other than mine, which is maybe the most valuable of all.

There are times when you have to turn inward, but often, that can lead to isolation, anxiety, and hurtful thoughts that you can't verify. It can lead to anger, rage even, because it's harder to see the other side when your back's turned towards it. And of course, it leads to loneliness.

I'm even learning about how I want to treat myself, by asking how I would like my friends to be treated, then checking how I treat me.

So don't worry; you've helped me, already.

Thank you all.

Well, I hope you treat you good! And don't spend much time inward, that sounds scary, and I don't want you to be sad. And, Anytime helping me can help you, feel free to help me :)

Well said, malign. If everyone could spend a moment to take inventory like this, then people will be much better off. This was the main point of Dave Chappelle, a popular stand-up comedian, regarding his sudden rise to fame and extreme success. However, people need not experience life changing events to appreciate this thought process, and I think this was what Dave was trying to pass along to his fans and anyone who cared to listen.
