Because we all need somebody

What hard experience have you ever made through alive on your own? Think about it. The last challenging event in your life -- maybe it was a death in the family, a sports injury, a difficult course in school, a breakup. Were you alone? All of these things can be really hard and heavy. And there are so SO many other twists and turns in life that I could not possibly list them all. Life can hurt. We know this. But the other thing I know is that I have never made it through any of these experiences without the compassion of another person. I have never made it through without another being, someone outside myself, pouring love into me. The plain truth of it is, we all need somebody. From the very beginning, man was not meant to be alone. Instead, we were created to be in relationships. That yearning you have to connect to people? -- it is natural and it is good. Don't shy away from it. I think too often we fear vulnerability and we close ourselves off to the world. Be somebody's somebody.

  16. what a great post. this is sooo completely and utterly true. i had an extremely hard situation come up a few years back...so very hard, confusing and soooo extremely personal and life changing. if i didn't have my mister it would have been so hard to get through it alone. i had to recover myself by being strong and true to myself but without having someone to lean on in times when i couldn't face another day with the pain i wouldn't be where i am today, happy and me! i am completely thankful to have had him...in turn i have been that someone to one of my best friends and it feels good to be on the other side...again a great post.

    xo,

  20. I've always been lucky enough to have someone I could turn to and talk with, someone who could comfort me and help. Going through life alone is so hard; even a smile from a friend helps to make so much of a difference.

  23. I have never made it through anything on my own. I have tried and it makes it sooooo much harder and prolongs the process. I am so grateful for the people in my life. Thanks for the reminder :)

  24. This post is exactly what I need right now. I went through a rigourous Accounting recruitment, sacrificed so much of my time for it, dedicated too much of myself, and for what? Those accountants didn't care. They hired those students who have connections in their firms already. And yes, I do need love right now, and support, and some more encouragement. I thank my friends and of course my parents who constantly try to make me feel better. Thank you, as well.
