I felt all alone and ashamed. No matter how many people were there for me, I couldn’t see them, hear them, or feel them.
I thank my lucky stars for the unconditional love of a few who showed me that during these difficult times, they would always love me, and would be there waiting when I was ready. Never forcing me, never making me feel bad for what I was doing. But constantly reminding me they loved me. Sometimes with a phone call or text, or sometimes with a basket of groceries they would leave outside my front door because they knew I had no money for food.
As humans, we tend to think we can control every aspect of our lives and others.
But the hard truth is, sometimes we can’t.
We want so badly to take that person by the hands and walk them in the direction they need to go; Because We feel if we don’t, the fate they might face will be on us, Because we didn’t at least try.
As a support system, it’s important for you to know, that first and foremost, whatever may or may not happen as a result of your help, it is not your fault.
And if you stress yourself day in and out with what MIGHT be, you will take energy away from what you CAN do:
Which Is just remind them you love them, and you are there for them.
Drop groceries at their front door.
Slide a random note under the door for them to find.
Don’t make them feel bad for their actions. Just remind them you love them and when they are ready, they will turn to the ones who showed them unconditional love in their darkest most shameful hours.
