Healing comes out of a very simple human relationship – knowing your life matters to another person, and connecting to something larger and unseen. A great example of this was given to me via email shortly after I posted the above quote somewhere online:

This quote particularly reminds me of something that happened to me at one of the darkest times in my life – nearly twenty years ago now – I went crazy and was hospitalized. I was terrified.

As I was being taken up to the ward in the elevator one of the two attendants said to me, “Your name’s Dave? My name’s Dave too…Don’t worry – you’ll be alright – we’ll take good care of you.”

This simple kindness from a fellow human being had a major impact on me.

As the saying goes, “Don’t miss a chance to be kind – you don’t know how many chances you’ve got left.”
