We All Need Someone To Lean On.


The words to that song have been going through my head a lot today. "We all need someone to lean on." We were never made to have to go through the "rough spots" alone. Often we have developed not so healthy coping mechanism to make it. As we begin to heal it is hard to let go of those coping skills. Yes they were coping skills, but they no longer work. Feeling the pain that is bottled up inside us can be so hard. During these times it can be hard to reach out to someone. Humans were never meant to be alone. We need each other. Sometimes I look at my life and wonder why there has been so much pain. Why do I exist? The one good thing I can see is that I genuinely care for others. Supporting and loving one another we can make it together.

I have always had to suck things up and keep going even when I feel like I'm being stepped on in the chest by a heavy boot. Whenever I'd express sadness about something my mother would pop off with "You think you've got problems? This is what happened to so and so." Invariably their problem would be something horrible and make my sadness, which I didn't understand, seem trite. Consequently I have a lot of ancient pain bottled up inside me. I learned unhealthy coping skills like self harm and substance abuse. When a "friend" of five years turned against me recently, I felt like cutting so bad.
You are stronger than you know and I admire you.

I agree! The Lord didn't make us to be by ourselves. Even here in this blog world, our friendships can be real!!! You are a blessing sister. And I'm continuing to believe in His healing for you and all the richest of His blessings be upon you and your family.

I wholeheartedly agree! That's what I love about the blogging world-- even though we aren't with each other in person we are all here supporting each other.

And I'm glad you can see something positive about yourself and your life. You are a genuine and caring person, and I am so thankful for the thoughtfulness you show me. Sending you lots of hugs!

Wishing you well,
NOS

There was a stage when I had been betrayed too often, I figured I did not need friends like these ... then I thought I do not need friends. But I was wrong, I prayed for friends whom I could rely on, when I needed them. Slowly but surely, true friends came into the picture... Thank God for his love. Bless you dear.
