One of the saddest things I have heard is that as people age they feel invisible. Isn’t that sad? I am not one of those people who is drawn, particularly, to the elderly as I know some people are, but I definitely want to change this invisibleness when I get the chance, which frankly is any day I am out and about.
We are all able to do at least one thing that says ” I see you” to just about anyone that may feel invisible. How do you know they feel invisible? Because you will not notice them as first, you will have to look for these people because when someone feels invisible they walk through the world unseen.
It takes so very little for us to bring them to the visible world, help them cross the street, offer them a grocery cart as you get yours, let them in line ahead of you, give them a warm smile, in short, be kind.
Next time you are out, help someone who you think may feel invisible be seen, especially if you are in a hurry, do yourself a favor, give a kindness, suddenly you will feel alive!
