The last few weeks in my life have underscored how truly essential a good support network is.
We all get cast out of our cozy realities from time to time. Life happens. Here we are, licking our wounds, feeling unloved and alone. What now?
Your support network is not going to rewind reality back to where it was before. But just having someone to talk to can work wonders. This is the month to express gratitude, so let me say a million thank you’s to the people in my life who are there for me, who keep me sane, who provide wise counsel in my never-ending struggle with reality.
A history lesson (from mcmanweb):
The young man became so preoccupied with suicide that his concerned friends moved in and stayed with him day and night, making sure to remove knives and guns from his presence. As he stayed awake, agitated and delirious, they maintained a vigil for more than a week.
Later, after the crisis abated, a friend invited the man to live in his lodging and helped start him on a career in law.
The young man later went on to become sixteenth President of the United States - Abraham Lincoln
Question: Lincoln had a great support network. How reliable is yours?
