Working in the care sector with people who have or have had experience of mental distress shows me that people can be genuine and love one another for who they are.
The empathy that is shown never fails to warm me and often makes me very aware of my own failings.
There is never talk of are you from this or that country or faith or background. They accept that they have common experiences and feel happy to share in the hope that they will be able to give hope or receive support.
In the groups I facilitate the only objective of the people present is to better the lives of others, to share journey's that have been taken in the hope that easier routes may be found.
One young up and coming star that I know is feeling particularly fragile at the moment. However he continues to use his talents to raise money and awerness to benefit others.
I strive to be like this and hope that I can be as generous.
