No man (or woman) is an island
“No man is an island,’ said John Donne. I feel we are all islands — in a common sea.”
~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea
We all have our own struggles…you, me and that beautiful, impeccably-dressed person you saw in the coffee shop this morning. But friends can help. So many of us can’t reach out to them. For years and years, this was very difficult for me, as well. Too proud as I was the one who offered support, who was the strong one, the rock people could depend and rely on. And then something broke open, and I realized to have true relationships with true depth, I had to share of myself and be vulnerable. Sometimes its the hardest thing in the world to do, and sometimes its the most important.
These past few weeks I have asked for a lot of help and accepted it. Thank you, dear friends.
I’d love to connect with you on social media.
