I read this a while ago in my daily blog reading and I have had it open on my desktop ever since. Why? Because it spoke to me. Because I know what it is to be in place where life sucks, and nothing anyone can say will change my reality. Because I have been in a place where I don’t need encouragement, or cheering up, or even to get over myself. Because sometimes the pain is so raw, the wound so open that all I need is someone to get right in there, get messy and bloody with me, hold my hand over my open wound and say “that sucks”.
I have friends going through stuff like that right now, and it sucks. I have family going through stuff like that right now, and it sucks. And maybe you are too. I just want to let you know, it sucks.
As Naomi put it so eloquently after my last post “sharing the pain sometimes is all we need”.
