Recently, a friend of mine did something for me that I could not do for myself. A huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I never knew how heavily it was weighing on my mind until it was gone. I feel much freer than I’ve felt in a long time, which is ironic, because the very thing that made feel free in the beginning enslaved me for years of my life.
I’ve learned more than I ever thought I would from this one action of friendship. I’ve long thought that if I needed help, it was a sign of weakness. The help that gives is the help I’ve never thought to accept.
Occasionally we run across problems that are just too much for us to handle, but it’s rare to find a friend who cares, sees a bad situation, and has the guts to fix it for you when it’s clear to see that you can’t do it yourself. I am forever grateful to these friends. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You’ll never know how much you’ve given me. I’m free to move on; I’m a better person because of you.
