Need Each Other


It's funny that I used to think I didn't need anyone in my life. I could handle just about anything by myself. Now I see how wrong that was. Others add so much more excitement and joy to life. Helping others helps you. People were made to be with others. Isolation is not a natural choice. I used to isolate from fear of being hurt. This isolation only brought more pain. They last year I have taken more "risks" and started trusting others. The "risks" have proven to be well worth the effort. This has been one of the happiest years of my life despite all the problems and changes. Sharing ups and downs make life more enjoyable. We need each other!

I agree comepletely. Isolation stems from fear. There is such a sense of freedom when you allow others into your life. (speaking as a former "loner") Its great to hear that you've had a good year thus far. Hope it finishes out stronger than it began ;)

I just read your story from a couple of days ago, and think you're a very courageous woman. Good for you to share like that.

I'm glad that you've got Jesus in your life. I know what it is to have a church family on whom I can lean when I need to and who I can support when they need support. We do need friendships.

Take care.

Oh gosh, we all need people in our lives that is for sure.

I don't think that I ever want to be alone and this is one of my biggest fears.

Everyone needs someone. I think it is those special friends that one can lean on that helps make life happy. I can not even imagine never sharing my joys and sorrow with my friends. I am glad that this year has proven that right for you!
