My recent flare up made me feel so miserable. Oh so miserable. I took to twitter to share my frustrations and that's not because I'm an attention seeking tweeter, but because twitter is the place I have so many friends and supporters, people who also have chronic illnesses, and people who don't. Regardless of who they are, I can always reply on people online to offer support. The support I receive online is invaluable and I am always so overwhelmed at how supportive and kind people can be when a person is going through a difficult time.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that a few small words can go a very long way. A few small words can be just what a person needed to hear to give them that little boost and to put them back on the bright yellow optimism path, the path of hope, and the path of determination (I told you I like a good metaphor!)
We all have the power to change a persons day via a few words of encouragement. The Internet is a powerful place, but what makes it so powerful are the people within it, and their kindness. We should share kindness, support and encouragement always. It is free after all!
