Have you ever felt like nobody was there?
Have you ever felt forgotten in the middle of nowhere?
Have you ever felt like you could disappear?
Like you could fall, and no one would hear?
These words are ringing in my ears hours after I listened to them for the first time. Today, one of my friends sent the video below and it really struck a chord with me.
As we go into Thanksgiving, we’re often thinking about the ways in which others have been there for us this past year, and I find myself extremely grateful for all of the supportive relationships in my life. From friends who send encouraging messages, to others who read and share my blog, and for the people who are there for me on a daily basis, I’m thankful. But, it also makes me think how I can be there better for others.
I know I’m saying this for the millionth time, but I mean it every time, if you’re reading this and need someone to reach out to, I’m here. I never want someone to feel as though nobody was there for them, as the song states in the beginning.
My challenge for you this week is simple: read about the musical Dear Evan Hansen that the song below is from (I need to see this ASAP) and go out into the world being open to listening, and helping others, where you can.
Even when the dark comes crashing through
When you need a friend to carry you
When you’re broken on the ground
You will be found
