79-Year-Old Gamer Grandma Reaches Out To Depressed Follower With Caring Message

"Do things that mean you’re living this life, not just existing in it."

Redditor RegularRaccoon captured one of the better examples of humanity on the internet with a recent post showing the kindness of gamer Shirley Curry, a Virginia grandmother who calls herself "Grandma" on her wildly popular YouTube channel.

The 79-year old Skyrim player responded to a comment left by one of her YouTube followers expressing their gratitude for inspiring them to hold out in the face of depression. 

Curry's replies, captured in a screenshot, were a beautiful combination of compassion, seasoned with soft-hearted scolding.

Her advice is well worth taking.

Her second reply read in part:

"…tell me at least one thing that you do each day that was fun, or at least pleasant or soul-satisfying or something you saw that was beautiful in nature, or if you went for a walk and saw interesting things. Do things that mean you're living this life, not just existing in it. … It will be like keeping a diary of good things … for grandma! :) I will save every one."

Thanks, Grandma.
