I have been overwhelmed today with Facebook messages, texts and calls. A girl I I worked with moths ago. A guy I worked with years ago. An old college friend. An old high school friend. None of this contact was solicited. I was settling in for a lonely Saturday. These are not my core people reaching out. These are acquaintances at best. It made me feel so loved, so validated in my life. I'll go to bed with a smile

My lesson to you all: Reach out. The love and support is there. It feeds your strength.

Thank you! Reaching out has been hard for me in the past b/c it makes me feel so vulnerable. But your post reminds me of one of my favorite new quotes:

“Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.”

― Brené Brown, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

((ChoosingHope, ))

Beautiful words. So true. Thank you. I've vowed to be more open and my actions have paid off in ways I couldn't have imagined. I've made so many new friends with people I've worked with for years.

Absolutely!! In the beginning, I remembering forcing myself to reach out. It was instinctual to withdraw and hide from the world but something told me to reach out and I did. My family and friends have been my lifesaver!

Thank you for posting this.

It has reminded me that I don't reach out enough. So today I am going to make a point of calling a few friends that I've not spoken to in a while.

Thank you sunsets and choosing! Both of your posts are so wonderful.

Friends and family...where would we be without them. That's a lesson I pray I'll never forget. It's not only reaching out, it's reaching forward to take hold of our new lives.

When DDay happened to me, that was the day my friendships strengthened and blossomed. I believe now that allowing people in to see our pain and let them help is an opportunity for them to show their love for us.

In a way, you are giving your friends a gift.
