We sometimes feel invincible. We just keep working, keep carrying, keep growing, turning around often to pull those that matter with us, when they’re not strong enough to walk on their own. We feel the need to show them, that what they’re doing is WORTH something, not a waste of time. That they MATTER. Life is Good! Mentoring is healthy. We keep building one brick at a time… and they become the mortar in between, as we do for THEIR wall! We are each other’s glue. We keep each other focused and help each other to hold on, when times are tough.
Even if we feel this strength can last forever, one day we wake up and as strong as were, is as weak as we’ve become. Overnight. It’s one brick that’s out of place, that shatters our foundation. No matter how hard we try to rebuild, sometimes we have to know how to fold.
Sometimes fate wins. Depression creeps inside our veins, and easily stays put. How to battle, and win that war is the question.
It’s holding on to your friends, and letting them hold on to YOU. It’s a win-win.
