I have heard many people say, “I don’t need nobody! I can do everything for myself. I was born alone and will die alone!”
Although we enter and exit this world all alone, the in between time doesn’t necessarily fit that description. To those who think that they need no one, think again!
When and if the waters of life eventually invade your presence, being alone is not ideal!
We all need someone to cry with, to laugh with, to lean on, to tell our troubles to, to celebrate our accomplishments with, to uplift us when we fail, to be there when all others are gone, to be our bridge over troubled waters …
Assistance, security, relief from loneliness, companionship….are some of the benefits of having others in our lives.
The need for people doesn’t signify weakness. To the contrary, it demonstrates strength!
There is strength in numbers!
Having someone – to talk to, to love, to be with, to hold….to be a part of our existence – is a great thing!
Don’t be alone and sad when you can be with someone special and be happy.
Whether it’s a friend, a confidant, a loved one …find your listening ears.
Don’t weather a storm alone if you don’t have to.
Never forget that the islands in the stream were once connected to a continent.
May I remind you that our creator in his infinite wisdom concluded that “it was not good for man to be all alone!” Who knew better than The Father?
