You can be the angel that a person really needs. πŸ’

He sat down all alone, staring into an object that wasn’t even visible.

But even though I couldn’t read minds, I immediately knew that his mind was troubled.

He wore the expression of that unfortunate cat that went down the ice water of a lake, looking totally drenched.

So I wanted to approach him and you know..talk to him. But I wanted to approach him in a different and funny wayπŸ˜„

I sneaked around the building, crawling like a cockroach that sighted the mother Hen πŸ˜…and I finally came to his seat. I wanted to draw him from his wonderland to reality. So I thought β€œlet me pick a leaf πŸƒ and slightly touch his neck area” πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

πŸ˜…πŸ˜…He jumped up like how Tom jumped when Jerry caught his tail with a trap πŸ˜…

I didn’t know him. He didn’t know me. But I felt it was my responsibility to approach him and make him smile.

I started a talk about my hobbies and how I also love sitting down and observing nature. I started a conversation because I wanted him to know that I’m interested in knowing about him. That I’m interesting in caring for what he believes in.

Then he hugged me in the middle of the conversation. He was so happy that he wasn’t alone in this world. He told me all that was making him sad.

He said the people around him think he’s a failure and they don’t want to associate with him. He said his family don’t want him, because he’s yet to get a job and β€œtake responsibility” He said he just wants to be loved by everyone else.

He was thinking of committing suicide because he believed the world had absolutely nothing to offer him.

He said it’s been years since anyone tickled him the way I did. The last person to do that was his kid brother, and he’s dead.

He just wanted to be loved. He just wanted to experience genuine love. All he wanted was love. He really missed being shown love by the people he really cares about.

And since then, we have been close friends and in fact, we are brothers. He’s gotten a job and he said because he knows someone who cares, his self-esteem really improved.

Presently, he’s in another country and the manager of a manufacturing company.

All that happened because of one small tickle. All that happened because I wanted to make someone smile. All that happened because of a desire to be there for him.


Why don’t you also approach that person that you know is down?

I tell you today, you have a RESPONSIBILITY for making people happy.

Check up on that person. Call that friend you’ve not called for a long time.

Because people don’t say what they going through, doesn’t mean that they aren’t going through deep problems.

They might be afraid to come tell you because they are ashamed. They feel they would be embarrassed. They really wish for someone to just talk to them and they will pour out their whole heart and mind.

They really really want someone to just say β€œhow are you doing?” And they will say all what is going on in their life. They just need to know that someone in this world cares about them.

Who knows? Maybe you might be the person to save that man/woman from attempted suicide. Who knows? You never can tell.

I shared my experience so that you will know that you can also do it! You can also be there for someone!

I am as human as you are. I have problems. I have challenges. I appreciate when people care about me. I appreciate it when people make me smile, just like you.

Please. Please. Please. I’m literally begging you to show love to everyone. Check up on people. Start up a good conversation with that person that’s looking depressed. It can really go a long way in boosting the self-esteem and overall positivity of that person.

I know you will make people happy. I know you will check up on that person.

I love you so much. ❀️❀️❀️I love you as much as I love myself. Your smile will always and always and always be my inspiration β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈπŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ πŸ’• please have a wonderful day aheadπŸ˜ƒ

  4. What a great blog to post at the end of Mental Health Awareness Week. Rates of suicide are particularly high in men. But your selfless actions prevented the man in this story becoming another statistic – and now he’s a company manager. What a testimony! Thanks for sharing this personal, powerful and inspirational experience with us all and as we reflect on this, may be inspired to reach out to others in the same way! πŸ™

    1. Thanks so much for reading Philip.

      Yes, the suicide rates are high in men because they are more afraid and ashamed to share their challenges than the women.

      Yes, we all have weird experiences and testimonies. This experience happened when I was still in high school. We lost contacts for sometime only for me to see him on social media in late 2019. We chatted and I was very happy to know that he is a β€œbig” person.

      That shows that no matter your age, you can make the world a better place by making people happy and inspired. ✨❀️

      How are you doing? πŸ˜ƒ
