Lean on Me


Is it just me, or has everyone been crazy lately? I don't mean that in a bad way. I mean, everyone seems to be having a difficult time just making it through the day. This week alone, I've had several serious talks with friends. In my world, that's weird because most of the time we're busy doing bits and not having serious conversations because we're surpressing our feelings. And it wasn't just my friends coming to me, I was going to them too! What is going on?

But I noticed a recurring theme. In almost every conversation I had, someone knocked someone else down. And it made me realize how often we, as people, blame everyone else for our problems. And not even that... but we knock other people down to make us feel better about ourselves.

This is nothing against my wonderful friends. They're all wonderful. I know for a fact that I do it too. But it put everything into perspective for me... and I'm going to try to knock other people down less. I need to take responsibility for my own shortcomings and faults and take action on my own. But, having a friend around to talk (and drink) with is always an added bonus!

I just want to be more supportive. All people really want is some support. They want to go about their days feeling like someone, somewhere has their back. That someone would maybe, I don't know, know if they died if they weren't heard from in a couple of days. (This absolutely crossed my mind when I had a concussion.) Let's show each other support, like Liz supports Tracy. Even if it is against her will most times.
