Physical pain, emotional pain, it is something no one likes. It is though something that is unavoidable. Still, it can be made easier to cope with.
All you need is a hug. Especially a hug from a loved one. Those few moments are enough to make the pain go away. Even if it is just for a little while, it is always welcomed.
You can always feel that warmth and love if you hug your favorite stuffed animal. It can be your piece of home everywhere you are. It can be your solace. It can be your friend who is always by your side. It can be the connection with your family and friends.
A stuffed animal is more than just a toy. It is a friend. A companion. Stuffies are known to be helpful in curing depression. They help children and adults cope with trauma. They are also very cute and fun.
So, next time you feel bad or hurt, no matter why, reach out and grab your favorite stuffed animal… or two. And simply hug them. You will feel better. It’s OK to feel down sometimes. It is a part of our lives. It is also OK to have someone to be there for you, even if it is a cuddly stuffed animal. There’s nothing wrong with that.
You will feel better and happier and that is great. And when you do, you will feel like hugging even more. Before you know it, you can be one happy hugger. So, happy hugging!
