No matter what and no matter for how long Loneliness is the biggest part of depression loneliness Kills people and by you being in their corner, by you showing and proving your support to them That’s all they need When I was in university suffering pretty pretty bad You could give me a million dollars Give me anything I ever wanted materialistic wise Give me all the money in the world literally all the money in the world Anything I kind of would want in a healthy state You know I kind of want the new iPhone, and I want a new MacBook, and I want a new camera and a microphone mm-hmm none of that matter All that I wanted to do Was call my sister and to talk with her People matter in these moments, people matter, and you matter for this person that you’re helping right now and just be there for them Simple Just be that loving kind gentle warming presence in their darkness and they will thank you for it, and they appreciate it so much right now Thanks for watching everyone, and I’m so proud of each and every one of you for clicking this video Because I guess it means that you are Looking to help someone who is suffering and that is the most courageous Thing you could possibly do in this world Take care.
