Encouragement for Connection

"I cannot walk for you, but I can walk alongside you."

Do you know someone who would say that to you in the midst of your crisis? Someone who would be there for you no matter what?

I see people struggling everyday who have no one to turn to when the going gets tough. People who are lonely in the midst of a crowd.

"Suffering itself does not do us in or sabotage the will to live. Usually we sabotage ourselves by foolishly trying to live our lives in isolation. Without the comfort and love of other human beings, none of us is very strong. Aligned with others who accept us and support us, we can survive most anything." Anne Kaiser Stearns

One of the best ways to find a supportive friend is to be one to someone else.

You can do it. I can help!
