“When your day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,
And you’re sure you’ve had enough of this life, hang on.
Don’t let yourself go, cause everybody cries
Everybody hurts…sometimes.” REM
We all hurt sometimes. We all need to cry sometimes. We all feel like giving up sometimes.
And that’s when you have to lean on someone in your life that is there for you, that you feel safe with, and that you can let your guard down with.
I’m going to be honest here. I’m there for anyone that needs me, anytime of day or night and for as long as they need me to listen.
Yet there are times, and thankfully not that many, that I need someone to be there for me to listen and let me feel safe to let the tears flow.
I don’t have a perfect life yet it’s perfect for me. I’ll take any difficult situation I’ve encountered in my life and make it the best that I can, yet there are times that I need someone to be there for me.
Let me share with you what I’ve learned and give you something to think about. You know that person that’s always there for you? The one you think has their life put together in a perfect package? The one that is stronger than anyone you’ve ever known?
They’re human and sometimes they hurt just like you do.
Don’t take them for granted because of their strength and ability to help you in your difficult situations. Be there for them. Love them through just as they have for you. Listen to them without judgement as they have for you. And remember even the strongest of people have a moment in which they need someone.
We’re all in this together. Let’s be there for each other.
Don’t let the strength and positive attitude of someone you know make you think that they don’t need someone to lean on every once in a while.
Because they do.
We all need each other.
Wishing you love and light,
