I’m struggling. Physically, mentally, emotionally and financially.
When I tell people this, they tell me I’m the strongest person they know and that they are certain my resilience will break through all of it. Depending on the person, I sometimes just barely confess the truth I’m feeling at my core, that I’m not as certain.
The follow-up response always leaves me confused: “I need you”, they say.
I’m really not even sure what that means.
Perhaps the reason I don’t ask is because I’m afraid that it has more to do with them, than me. Maybe deep down, I can’t conceive that I’m irreplaceable when so many have walked away and lived their lives without bother.
What is the message and/or lesson?
