It’s been a while since I’ve written an open, honest, straight from the heart post. It’s hard when you really want to talk but you’re being silenced. When circumstances demand you keep secrets. I find I can’t hold it all anymore…
I still can’t be as honest as I would like to be, but I need to say something.
So, I have a friend. This friend may be going through a horrible, upsetting situation and he may have brought most of it on himself. He may not be perfect.
Having said all that, he might be going through something which is heartbreaking to watch. He’s usually so confident and assured and at the moment he’s a bit…well…broken. He’s struggling with so much guilt at the moment and wishes he could make things better for all the people he’s hurt.
We had a rough day today, and it looks like the future could get much bleaker before it gets better.
I’m trying very hard to be supportive and caring. I want him to know that he still has people who love him and would rescue him from this situation if we could. I know I would do anything to try and make things better for him.
I can’t help him. My hands are tied, and nothing I can say or do will help now. So I just watch. I don’t know if there is anybody out there who can help him, but I would do anything to find them. I would tell them that no matter what he has done, he has suffered more than enough. He deserves a chance to put it all behind him. I would ask them to have pity and to show him that you can trust people and the world isn’t a horrible place to be, where every person is looking out for themselves.
The next few weeks are going to be horrible. For everyone involved. But I have to believe that things will get better. You have to stay strong. Do not be afraid – even if the worst happens, and things don’t turn out the way you hoped they would, you have to try and stay positive. You have to remember that nobody knows what is just around the corner. And you can’t change the situation you are in, but you can change your reaction to it.
I’d appreciate it if you’d keep my friend in your prayers.
Thanks for listening.
