Compassion Charms

This week has been very exciting for me. The project that my daughter has been working on is now completed. Well, it still depends on a lot of people and their outlook about helping people in general. 

For a long time, she had been thinking about helping people understand that mental illness is nothing to be embarrassed about. As a matter of fact, it is good to show solidarity towards people who suffer from Depression and Anxiety.  It will be really nice if school counselors could understand the need of today's children when it comes to behavioral problems. There are some schools that have resources for helping children but children need more than counselors to understand what is going on in their minds. It will be nice if children understand from a younger age that human beings have to be nice to each other. We as society have a responsibility to give a message to the future generation that kindness and caring can help people .
If everyone understands from a young age that not all of us are made the same way and if depressed people are not left to be lonely we can save the future generation from having to suffer the emotional setbacks that hinder them from being productive.

Hi Munir -depression as part of mental illness is so difficult ... so I think it's great your daughter has her project going .. it will inspire people and I'm sure help many to achieve, despite their anxieties. Lots of opportunities are available for people to help ... congratulations to your daughter and to you for promoting her ...cheers Hilary

Love the charms. Tell her to make some that say "I matter" and "I love myself":-)

It's easy to be discouraged by all the bad in the world. Your daughter's project with hopefully put more good into our society and enlighten many to do good. Kindness leads the way to compassion, empathy, true caring and one of the best ways to help others...service. Losing ourselves in service can brighten our day as well as others.

Dearest Munir,
Those charms are one aspect but indeed from a very young age children have to be taught right about kindness towards others and acceptance.
Nowadays there is so much hatred and forming of different 'blocks/groups' of people. That is not solving anything!
Wishing your daughter good luck on raising awareness for this.

DMS said...

Sounds like a wonderful project. Thanks so much for sharing it with us! :) Mental illness is not something anyone should be embarrassed about.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

You've obviously done something "right" to have a daughter with so much compassion. It's shameful to still see so much hatred in the world, so promoting understanding and empathy is more important than ever. Good for your daughter, and good for you. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Very cool! Wishing your daughter every possible success with this worthwhile project.

Hi Munir,

Such a thoughtful post. As an advocate of eradicating the unfair stigma that is attached to mental health concerns, this is a most poignant post.

I shall check out your daughter's website.

I choose to live with rather than suffer from my mental illness. My illness, not a curse, an ironic blessing that's humbled and inspired me.

In peace and hope,


Dee said...

Dear Munir, I so admire and appreciate your daughter and her work/project. Contentment with self/inner peace is born out of love and kindness expresses that love. As you say so well, the time to learn that is when we are young and life seems so strange to us with its messages and its conundrums. Peace.

This is very important work.

You must be very proud. I'm so glad to learn that your daughter is starting this - children need to learn and build compassion. All power to her, and I'm going to visit her site.
Thank you, Munir.
Have a great weekend.

Mental illness is challenging for both the person who has it and the people who live with them. I'm glad your daughter is taking on a project that can help.

I have to say, your daughter is pretty thoughtful and amazing to come up with such a wonderful way to help children... I wish her lots of luck with her endeavours xox ♡♡♡

Dear Munir, I'm wondering if all is okay with you. It's been several months since you posted this post about your daughter's new project. I hope you are simply busy, and not ill. May you know peace during this season of hope and expectation.
