How am I supposed to help?

My best friend is going through some MAJOR medical issues right now. To the point where she is ready to end her life because she can’t put up with the pain any longer. Let alone all the medical bills she will be receiving here soon… I want to help her and be there for her but we live 45 minutes away from each other and I am going through a lot right now with my divorce and my relative having skin cancer.

It brings me to the question. How can someone be there for someone else when both people are so broken.


You have to be strong from the person who needs it more. You have to learn to put on your rain boots when it’s raining so hard you can’t see. Walk outside and walk through those puddles knowing that if you are sinking in one there are so many people out there who will help you. Trust me, I come from a very religious family, I though Divorce was going to make me an even more outcast. Instead on being looked down upon I was surrounded with love and support. Even when people didn’t know what was going on. Some people still don’t know what’s going on…

The storm will end. One day. You just have to believe and trust that it will end.

  1. I don’t normally comment upon random articles that have come upon my screen but I feel compelled to do so here.
    Your family is religious but are you?
    When storms are raging around us we need to have a strong inner peace that is only obtained through a close trusted relationship with God through Jesus his son.
    Then we can take all these things to God in prayer. He will fix us and provide us the strength to fix others if we obey his will.
    Pray for your friends healing, in body and mind, pray for her financial anxieties to be removed. Pray for your own anxieties and stresses. Pray for your friends skin cancer to stop in its tracks and die away. Lay all these weighty burdens upon God and trust that He will handle them for you. In return you will receive rest, a renewal of your spirit and strength and a much lighter load.
    And yes storms do end and pass over but with faith they can also be calmed.
