Smiles have power

May 3, 2019


Humans are different from one another. We all carry different lives; have different tastes and see things from different perspectives. Nonetheless, we do have something in common. All of us struggle. Some days more than others, others less than some. 

Perhaps, your friend’s parents are having financial problems, so he’ sad or worried, or both. Maybe your classmate had a fight with her sister so she’s grumpy and sensitive. The girl who lives near your house might be really insecure. 

There’s nothing others can do about it. There’s nothing we can do about it. Is not that what we tell ourselves? 

No, You can’t lend that friend’s family money, or make your mate get along with her sister. Your neighbour must sort out her insecurities by herself. 

It isn’t your responsibility to fix other people’s issues. Everybody will always have them; they’re a constant in all humans lives. But life’s not about problems and how we solve them. Life’s about how we and others co-live with them. Happiness is the sum of little moments of pleasure; of joy; of laughs and smiles. I throughly believe I cannot say I have had a great day if I hadn’t laughed until my stomach hurts. 

So that’s what you should aim for:  to  help others to be happy despite difficulties. Tell somebody their hair looks nice. Ask them how they’re doing, tell a joke, make them laugh. Smile at people in the street, greet them. Talk to persons, share with them, be kind to them. Show them they are not alone in this wide, scary world. We are all together in this wild trip life is. And if you’ve got nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all. 

You will see once you change your attitude toward others, theirs will change as well. 

Always remember, what you plant you will harvest later.
