u/covfefeboss shared, "Wishing your uncle the best. Schizophrenia is a horrible disorder that no one deserves." u/i_am_a_babykangaroo commented, "I’m in tears. As someone who has a very close loved one with bipolar disorder who has gone through some pretty severe manic episodes this is incredibly moving to me." u/thesnobbishgunman revealed, "This poor guy is holding onto what sanity he feels by having a routine so he can try to know what's real and isn't real." u/Beahner expressed, "Oh man. Yeah, I’m not from the same cultural heritage as you, but I do live in Florida and am in the special needs community. It is prevalent in some cultures to not look deeper into things and just try to take care of a loved one. It’s flawed in that there is help out there. And I’m so glad he’s getting that help. That said, routine is a huge coping strategy." u/VandesKaani shared, "At some moments in life, we all have to suffer from something. In those moments this is what we need. A little something to remind us. This isn't the end."

This is true that in moments of suffering, some support from our loved ones might go a long way. It gives us hope to keep going despite the obstacles as we all love to feel cared for and appreciated by our loved ones. This video is adorable for the reason that the child offers the support that the man in the video needs and makes him feel connected and cared for. As for the child, he also appreciates his uncle's company more than anything else. This video is a true example of how unconditional love can be healing.
