When a friend feels the pain of depression, or the weight of failure it can be hard to know what to do.
It can seem overwhelming; the problems so large and complex that words don’t seem to make a dent in the dark cloud surrounding your once sunny comrade.
Maybe your friendship isn’t what they need right now?
You could just give them space?
While you drift away from your friend, their screams for help scratch desperately at your memory.
They need you.
Now is not the time to leave.
All of us have a friend right now who is clawing at the surface.
Who is begging for us to hear their pleads for help.
Through their words, written or spoken, they are crying out for someone to listen, to relate, and to support them.
Don’t leave, click away, or disappear when they reach for you.
Stay around, open your arms, and let them know you are here and you bring love.
This post is written for all of my friends in bloggy world feeling the pull of failure and the funk lately.
I love you all, you are all strong and you will get through this!
