Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
I'm not sure if you overheard my conversation, I don't know if it's because you noticed a look in my eye as you walked by. I got home and started thinking of a way to explain how you found the courage to walk up to me to ask me if I'm ok. I'm a 31 year old man going through a rough time in my life. I was sitting on a bench on Riverside and having a conversion with my aunt. I noticed you walk by with someone cause I looked up as you were looking my way. I wasn't even talking about stuff besides everyday chat, nothing related to how I really feel. I hung up and sat there quietly just staring. After a little while I went back to my truck and just sat there for about 2-3 min before I got a knock on my window. I rolled it down and you were there, a mature woman (I'm not going to guess your age) and you looked at me and asked me if I'm ok. I looked at you weird for a second wondering if I said something you over heard that made you ask me but I couldn't think of it. I answered and said I'm fine just having a rough week. Now listen, I'm not a small guy and I might look like a tough guy when people see me, I really didn't think I was the approachable kind of guy. You asked if you could give me a hug, without hesitating I got out of my truck and gave you a hug. You said you hope my week gets better and I almost broke down into tears but I kept it all in. You told me to have a good day and got into your car where an older gentleman was sitting in the driver's seat. I got goose bumps just typing this out.
This is a long shot but if you happen to read this and even though I thanked you as you walked away. I never really knew how thankful I was until I got home and thought about what just happened it made me realize how much it helped. So thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. You really helped me with that random question and simple hug, so thank you for asking. I know things will turn around for me just because of what happened today. Blessings
