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.
