The Lonely Road
We all experience times in our lives when our world turns upside down. All that we believe in this world ceases to make sense.
Illness, court battles, loss of a job, divorce, loss of a home to fire or flood, or anything else that leaves us with the question, "What the hell is happening here and how do I make it stop?" gets dropped in our laps, whether we want it or not.
We are forced to deal with it.
Unfortunately, no matter who may be around to want to help, whether offering a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, food and shelter, we feel alone and vulnerable, sometimes incapable of acting or reacting.
We do not want to have to feel or act. But we must.
We are on a lonely road in those moments. This is not because we are alone, but because we trust nothing and no one, least of all, ourselves.
And yet, in order to get through whatever we have been dealt, we have to find the resolve to keep moving forward. We have to learn how to accept the love and kindness offered to us, as we face these situations in life that are so painful.
We must learn how to trust again.
