You’re not alone.

by P. Braithwaite

I have said this before, but I’ll say it again:

Life is scary and full of unknowns. What we think we know for sure, ends up false. What we say we want, isn’t what we need, and what we hate ends up being our salvation…And, when all is said and done, none of us make it out of here alive.

I’m just gonna say it: life can suck…

When I am scared, when I am weary, when I have trouble loving myself…I draw strength from knowing that, if nothing else, I don’t have to ‘do life’…alone.

I know some of you think that’s bullshit, but it’s not.

Some of us have awesome families. Some of us have great friends. Some of us have lovers, and some have therapists and coaches who hold us down.

We may feel we have no one, but that’s not true.

Last night, I opened up to a room full of strangers, and they received my neurosis me with open-hearts.

You’re allowed to receive love and support. Let me say that again…you deserve a safe haven in this life…

So, for those who feel you have no one, you have me. Take comfort…even if you’re afraid…we will face the unknown together.

And so it is.
