The Power of Believing in Each Other

By Daria Campbell

“The Unicorn looked dreamily at Alice, and said “Talk, child.”
Alice could not help her lips curling up into a smile as she began: “Do you know, I always thought Unicorns were fabulous monsters, too? I never saw one alive before!”
“Well, now that we have seen each other,” said the Unicorn, “If you’ll believe in me, I’ll believe in you. Is that a bargain?”

― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland / Through the Looking-Glass


When was the last time you told someone you believe in them or someone said it to you?  When I look back over my life I can tell you all the times someone has told me they believe in me.  Sure of course Parents and Teachers but I have had some unlikely sources as well over the years at all different stages of my life.

Having someone sincerely say these words to you can change your whole outlook on your circumstances and inspire you to do all lots of wonderful things.

We are made to encourage not to tear down. Lifting someone to aspire them to reach for higher heights is a wonderful gift but it can be a skill if you choose it to be.

There is never a shortage of people around you who are either just treading water or worse drowning in the overwhelming demands of the world. But if you tell someone you believe in them, they can turn things around in an instant just knowing someone has noticed them and truly thinks they can make it.

Sometimes we find ourselves so buried under our own circumstances that if you take your eyes off yourself and look around at the people in your life you might notice that someone is doing even worse and all they need is some words of encouragement. The interesting part is that when you do this for someone else you in turn feel good as well.

Know that I believe in you.
