Encouragemint.org provides emotional support for your everyday issues, hotline and other referrals, and factual information about emotional well-being and mental health.
A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand: “Today my best friend slapped me in the face."
They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one, who had been slapped, got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him. After the friend recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone: “Today my best friend save my life.”
The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, “After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?”
The other friend replied: “When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.”
At this time, Encouragemint is undergoing a structural reorganization. This means that while many changes will be happening behind the scenes to improve our organization, you will see little to no changes or updates in the immediate future on the website. We thank you for your patience and look forward to a greater Encouragemint in the year ahead.
