At the first meeting, my husband and I were getting ready to leave the house and I had decided that we would not have a lot to work on during the next few years. I don’t remember what happened, but I do remember that it was in the form of a call. I’m not sure how it happened, but I know that I was a little bit confused.
Not long after we got home, my daughter asked me if she could go to the store and get a book. As I was putting my pants on and making sure I was ready to leave, I heard a female voice on the phone say, “I am so sorry, I was at the store.” I turned to see my daughter sitting in my car with a book in her hands.
The fact is, a lot of us are a little lost in the shuffle. We have no idea what we want to do. We do, however, have a pretty good idea of what we don’t want to do.
Most of the time we’re busy with what we don’t want to do and what we dont want to do is what we most definitely want to do. But sometimes, one of the things that we don’t want to do is what we need to do. What happens is that we get a call from someone, and it’s not to ask when we can pick them up. We get a phone call from someone and it’s not to ask when we can grab them.
How often do we get a phone call about something that we want to do? Its usually because our friends, or our significant others, or our parents have asked us to do something for them. But the truth is that we all want to do something for someone. When we get a call about something we wont do because we dont want to do it, we can end up doing something else that we dont want to do.
In the end, what we want to do is get a call from someone we care about in order to thank them for something they did for us. We have to be willing to do things that we would otherwise not be willing to do.
It is so important to us to have people who care about us in our lives. Friends, relatives, and other significant others are the most important people in our lives. We care about them so much that our very survival is dependent on them. Therefore, it is imperative to be able to offer them words of encouragement, appreciation, and even forgiveness.
It’s important to note that a person is not an island unto themselves. A person needs to have someone to call on who cares about them. This is not to say that each person needs to have a “special friend.” Rather, a special friend is one person who cares about you and your life. This special friend is someone you can share your life with, someone you can call on the phone or on Skype, someone who will talk to you when you are feeling down.
When I was younger I had many friends that I could share my life with. I got my friends when I was in college, when I moved away, and when I got married. My special friends helped me through the hardest times. I never had to ask for help because everyone knew where to be. I didn’t have to wait for someone to come to my rescue. I just needed a friend. Nowadays it seems we need a special friend to call on every single day.
I remember when I was younger, I was very self-aware. I knew I didn’t have to be rescued by a special friend because I could ask someone for help whenever I needed to. But I was so afraid of being alone that I was never able to call on someone when I needed one. Now I realize that this is not always true and I do ask and I do call on people all of the time.
