Surround yourself with people who challenge you to become better than you are. Don’t sit in you’re bubble waiting for someone to dare enter your sanctuary, get out there and be all you can be.
Surround yourself with love and comfort and hope and tranquility. For in this one life you have there will be times when every ounce of strength will be taken from you and these reserves will play a vital role.
Surround yourself with compassion and caring and warmth. Learn to love yourself as you love those most dear to you and be kind to yourself when no one else will be, you are just as valuable as them.
Surround yourself with every possible armour against the cruelties this world will throw at you, for there will be many along the road. Don’t be afraid to ask for help from anyone you have to; this is not weakness, this is strength.
Surround yourself with family, friends, neighbours and the community you call home for these will be your greatest allies when your darkest days befall you. These are the the people who will catch you when you fall and help you rise again.
Don’t be alone. Don’t be afraid. Don’t be unloved.
