Lately, a lot has been happening in life and it’s all due to external factors beyond my control. These difficult times have allowed me to take a step back, and process everything that’s changing around me. One thing I have learned through it all is the importance of receiving support and providing support to others. The saying ‘no man is an island’ couldn’t be any truer. Sometimes it’s not until you go through difficult times, do you recognize the need for support from others. You simply can’t survive life without the help from the people who care about you. Support can come in many different ways. Sometimes it is as simple as an ear to listen to your cries and troubles, and other times it is a friendship or relationship that journeys with you through life. Even caring souls to help you as you fight through your health scares can provide that just in time support that you may need. Whatever the type of support, never think of it as a form of weakness or dependency on your part. No matter how much you may try to be “bad all by yourself”, you just can’t attain everything on your own. Being independent is an amazing thing; however, we all need to depend on others at times. So put your pride aside, open your heart, receive support and remember to give it to others as well.
If you are going through a tough time, I pray that you are able to find the support you need!
