Being there for someone

On March 29, 2012, in People, by Michal

The difficult things people go through are like rivers- there is a lot going on underneath the surface that we cannot see.
We can shout from the sidelines “Hey, just swim over here…” but don’t you think someone would have already tried that? No one swims in misery because they like to.
Instead, the only way for us to really help people is to dive into the water with them… To come close and to try to see if we can look under the water of what is going on. Perhaps their foot is stuck or the current is just too intense to swim against it and someone needs to drift with it for a while until a shore can be reached.
Are we willing to get wet and jump in or are we going to stand on the sidelines?
