An amazing, beautiful tribe of people. They show up in all kinds and forms of social status, gender, age, and nationalities.
They deserve all the respect, admiration and encouragement we can give them.
The struggle they face is intense.
The setbacks they experience, the discouragement, self-doubt, and temptation to simply give up in those difficult, dark moments that sometimes hit are real. They might have to deal with people opposing what they’re doing or face immense criticism and hurtful judgments.
They regularly meet with incomprehension, jealousy, and loneliness.
The benevolent smile they wear on their faces when being there for those who need them has most often been preceded by tears of disappointment, overwhelm and pain.
And it’s all because of their unstoppable desire to contribute to making this world a better place that they keep sacrificing their time, energy, money and life.
They are called to work on the front lines; the rest of us is called to encourage them.
So let’s be there for them when they need a listening ear, let’s support them with whatever we can, let’s encourage them, cheer them on and never miss a chance to tell them how much we appreciate what they’re doing and how much of an impact they’re making in this world!
