I see you

Hello readers. I have been thinking about loneliness. It has just been loneliness awareness week in the UK (15-21st June). When children play hide and seek they love to be found (seen). I think we all want to be seen.

During the lockdown, one of my most poignant memories is of people who have ‘seen’ me, namely remembered me, contacted me. Yes it needs to be reciprocal, have I reached out to people myself? But there is something special about someone seeing you and making that effort, especially when they are busy.

Hope is an embracing friend. Hope sees and looks out for us and encourages us forwards, towards a better tomorrow. Hope doesn’t ignore people. Hope is an action as much as a feeling. Hope in action.

Today’s recipe of hope is to truly see people. I would like to refer people to a wonderful post on photography by The Wandering Ambivert, a great blogger. It talks about seeing nature and I think is applicable to life. And do check out Lady D’s, a brand new health and wellbeing blog which my friend Helen has just launched. We can see one another and we can see other bloggers too.

May you have 20/20 vision for the important things in life X

I am a qualified social worker and run a community project for vulnerable adults. I am passionate about social justice. I feel that every life matters. No-one is insignificant or invaluable. I also believe that everyone has the power to change, although some may not wish to. Essentially, I believe in hope. Hope Wells is my writing name.
