The Worrier’s Guide to Lasting Friendships

I feel like you’ve lost your confidence. At one time, you felt assured of your purpose; if not specifically, at least generally. You knew you had worth. You question that now.

It’s not surprising, given what you’ve been through, but it is heartbreaking to watch, nevertheless. You have seen so much loss that it’s hard to fathom, let alone deal with, as you must every day.

Every waking day.

I can see you fading, in your pictures. Even a year ago, when the worst of it had already happened, the fire was still there. Now, you struggle to generate that, or any, fire. But you keep trying.

If another person loving you, and believing in you completely, was enough, you would have enough. I believe in your gifts, your views, your heart, and your worth.

I believe, completely, in you.

This life is temporary, we all know. Disappointment, pain and grief frame our existence. But so do hope, joy, and love.

I hope and believe the best for you, I know that joy is still there for you, and I love you, truly.

Even though we’ve never actually met, and may not ever.


I’m attaching the video below because it’s better than 99% of the movies I’ve ever seen in my life.

  1. Written to all his thousands of readers and from his heart-

    Good morning, SR. Again i feel you are a mind reader-no promises but I’ll/(we’ll-we are not alone-) try. I’ve dried my tears and posted this just for me.-printed and posted on my desk with gratitude-and the hope that this, and all God’s gifts may make a difference in my path.
