it's so easy to feel isolated. to tell yourself that no one understands. to be convinced that you are alone and unsupported.
but it is so far from the truth.
I am so grateful to have the people in my life. And it's amazing how, when something happens and I need support, I automatically feel alone, which makes it that much harder and scarier to deal with whatever I need to deal with. But then, someone calls, or someone skateboards by, or smiles, or whatever. And I remember all the wonderful people who make up my support system. And I realize that I am constantly surrounded by human beings, human beings who all feel, and hurt and cry like I do. And maybe they don't relate to the exact situation in my life, but we all know what it's like to feel alone, to feel overwhelmed, stressed, or angry- whatever it has looked like for us. And when we need a shoulder to cry on, or an ear to listen, someone to scream with or a body to lie next to- people pull through.
So here's to people. 'Cause we're not alone.
