Be Who You Needed When You Were Younger


“Be who you needed when you were younger.”

I saw this image while scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed at lunch today. This is a powerful statement! Think about the times you were young and needed someone to guide you. Maybe there was a reason one of your parents were not. Or maybe you were simply angry at them for some silly reason kids get angry at parents, but you still sought advice. Who helped shape you into the person you are today? Your parents? Grandparents? Your best friend’s mom?  Sunday school teacher? Soccer coach?

I encourage you to think back to those individuals who helped to guide you into the person you are now. Reach out to them and tell them thank you.

More importantly, strive to be that person for someone else who is young and searching for answers. Think about the young people in your life. How can you help them?

Just as people influenced your own life, YOU have the potential to to make a positive impact on someone’s life.
