Sometimes we feel like we are trapped in quicksand, sinking away little by little, day by day.
When submerged in muck, do you wallow in self pity?
Or do you cast self doubt aside and push your way to the surface?
If your friends are the ones bogged down, do you leave them to fend for themselves?
Or do you forge ahead and construct a trail for them to follow, and even pull them along if needed?
Water and air…sustenance of life.
Love, acceptance, and compassion…necessities of friendship. As always we must be kind enough to offer these things to ourselves before we can give them to others.
Are you your own lifeline? Are you a lifeline for others?
