Lean On Me

Lean On Me

We were born into this world not alone. We are not meant to be isolated. Humans are meant for fellowship and kinship. Here is where things get tricky. When fighting an illness sometimes we lose our voice. When we lose our voice we then become a representation of how we want people to see us. We think if I share my daily struggles I am annoying, unlovable, and even unworthy of love and friendship. We also hold everything inside and at some point we will either explode or fall to pieces. If we do not have close honest friends who is there to pick up the pieces. No one.

Don’t get me wrong I know trusting others with our secrets of pain and finding genuinely kind people that will lift us up is not an easy chore. And being in constant distress does not motivate us to add on more chores. I promise you finding fellowship and sharing your life with others has been nothing short of life saving for me.

My friends inspire me, encourage me, comfort me and on a daily basis humble me because they are such huge blessings. They have taught me about trust, that true friendship exists and that I deserve it. Tonight I literally did lean on my friend! It’s not just lip service they show me daily how kind and understanding they are to me just the completely messed up way I am.

Maybe you could start by being my friend?

“Lean on me when you’re not strong
And I’ll be your friend, I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
‘Til I’m gonna need somebody to lean on

You just call on me, brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you’ll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

If there is a load
You have to bear that you can’t carry
I’m right up the road, I’ll share your load
If you just call me”
