People Who Help You (Originally Published 6/14/11)

Often times I feel alone, I feel like nobody understands me and what I’m feeling. But if I would open my eyes and heart I would be able to see that so many people do.

I can’t wait to be in the arms of those that care about me so much again. I’ve helped them through rough times and they’ve helped me and that is an unbreakable bond. Knowing that with anything life throws at us we will still have each other, is the most amazing feeling one could ask for.

Understanding that rough times happen to everybody but how rough it seems is a matter of how rough you and others make it. Trying to get through it instantly makes it better. Letting other people help you through it without pushing them away helps you get through it. There are so many things out there that make it better. But there are so many things out there that make it worse.

My best advice is to ignore the things that make it worse. Simply pretend they didn’t happen. If it’s somebody you are very close to they probably just don’t know how to respond to the situation. Don’t write them off, understand that it’s just not their forte. They still love you and they will still be there for you when you need a hand to hold or a shoulder to cry on, but they simply don’t know the right thing to do or say. That’s okay.

God would not put anybody in your life that won’t make you stronger. If they’re hurting you, it’s for just as much a reason as people helping you.
