“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: “What! You too? I thought I was the only one.” C.S. Lewis
We are really not alone in this world. Look around, there are so many people walking around this earth, the opportunities to make friends and connections are endless. So be vulnerable to those connections and reach out to another. Or, allow another to reach out to you. God speaks through each one of us. A higher power speaks through each one of us. An amazing energy works through all of us. When we ask the universe for something, be cognizant that the answers can come from the most unlikely places, you just have to be willing- willing to hear, to love, to ask, and to reach out when you most need it. We are not alone here, although our ego may want us to believe it- it’s just not true. When we do become vulnerable to life and to others, we get to experience everything that comes our way with an open and loving heart. And, yes it will not be a surprise that when you open up to another, you will realize that we all are traveling on similar paths and the things we are experiencing are not unique to us. We are not the only one and by reaching out someone may be able to shed light on our temporary darkness. Everyone has struggles, life is made easier when there is a hand to hold onto as we get help to find a solution, move forward or just allow it to pass. Just my thoughts as in my experience many have brightened my life when it felt dark and for those friendships I am eternally grateful.
