So much responsibility. Too many worries.
So little time. Not enough strength.
So much to deal with. Too many problems.
So little energy. Not enough wisdom.
So much at stake. Too many risks.
So little support. Not enough courage.
And then: A moment of connection. A chance meeting that inspires hope. A glance that tells you someone else gets it: a friend, a therapist, a stranger.
A shared thought, a shared value, a shared feeling. It doesn’t take much; it is everything. You breathe into your belly and find you can once again carry your burden lightly. You smile in gratitude, vowing to remember you are never only alone…
