Someone emailed me about my fifty forth reason – You’re okay
She was wondering if it would help me to listen to it when I’m in a dark place, or would be trite and annoying. That made me laugh, for I was thinking when I read that, about the blue sky and birds chirping, which sometimes are uplifting, and sometimes d*** frustrating. That they’re at odds with me.
She asked me what would be helpful for her as a friend to say to people who are there. What would be helpful for my friends to say – and do – when I am there.
What would help you? What would you want others to say and do? How would you want others to be there for you?
I know the responses will be varied… for everyone is different.
I’ll try add my response later once I’ve had the time to think about it.
