Sometimes it is like that, life I mean, and it truly can feel as if you are suffocating. We’ve all been there. Things happen, and when they do, if they are bad things, it hurts. You can feel like your spirit is being broken. During times like this it helps to have someone who can hold you and tell you that things will get better. That it is not as bad as it may feel right now.
Maybe they can say, “Everything will be all right” even if they do not know that for a fact. Because, honestly, we never really know. But if someone holds you and tells you that, sometimes that is all that is needed.
Sometimes just saying those words makes it so.
