It’s sad that in society not everyone has our back, but perhaps that’s got something to do with the fact that they haven’t got their own backs.
That when life seems to blindside us with circumstances that leave us unsure of ourselves, uncertain of the way ahead that others have our backs that are there for us without complaint; supporting us and not for personal self-gratifying reasons or for their own selfish needs, but because our wellbeing is important to them.
It also doesn’t have to be someone were close to, but someone who is happy to make selfless sacrifices, someone who lives with compassion and empathy in their hearts and is happy to make a difference. Someone who has our back and recognises the good in us; particularly in the moments where we’re not seeing it for ourselves.
That someone won’t judge, but is happy to work through what we get to deal with. I know what it’s like to struggle with emotions, to work through uncertainty, to deal with anxiety and fear; coupled with yet even more uncertainty.
But through all my experiences, I have still learned how to make other people’s lives easier. Over the years I have also learned what it’s like to emotionally work on my own and that can be difficult, particularly if we’re struggling to find the answers, but I always do what’s right.
That where we can put ourselves out, where we can make a difference and have people’s backs perhaps that’s what we should do. It also means emotionally we stay connected.
