I’ve got your back

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.

  1. Oh yes, most certainly agree. There aren’t many of us, sadly, but when we DO meet that special soul(s), they’re definite keepers!

    The one or two friends (and I know exactly who they are) that we can tell anything to without ridicule, criticism, judgement, or lecturing. They let us talk, and with compassion and understanding talk with us trying to sort out our troubles, because they only want the best for us.

    I don’t mean to get off topic, but this has a little to do with this subject. For months now, this country has been bopping each other over the head; over disagreements. Even families have been torn apart, just because one family member or two have a different viewpoint.

    This is never what humanity is supposed to ever be about. Life is hard enough, we are all in this very large boat called life, and no one has it any easier. We need to support each other, be there for other people during trying times and love each other.

    Last night in Vegas was so awful and scary. For the first time in months, Americans put down their stupid politics and differences and came together and jumped in towards the danger, helping people without any thought of their own wellbeing. Officers were killed helping people, strangers were helping people on the ground and getting them to safety.

    It should never take a crisis like that to come together. When will humanity ever learn? Or has that ship sailed? I pray it has not and there’s still hope.

    1. I think you’re right Bonnie. It takes a crisis to bring people together as we are continually shown, but then we forget and history repeats itself.

      I think your last paragraph sums up your response nicely. When will humanity learn? Whilst people have their views on things like culture and religion, those things tend to be put first.

      Although we do grow up in cultured homes, because most of us are born into culture and traditions and I believe there still is a place for those things, but there seems to be a lack of tolerance too.

      I believe we must have each other’s backs regardless of personal beliefs. Just be there for others through things like empathy, compassion and tolerance. It’s not difficult to do. It’s just a different way for us to think, act and be.

  2. Being selfish is a sin no one seems to notice, until there’s an empty chair in the room. And even then people incite sympathy for themselves.

    But when I have someone’s back, I’m pleasing the universe at the same time. We’re here for reasons other than ourselves, that I know.

    1. Thanks Tim. Yes, you’re right, we absolutely are.

      I think if more of us were aware or began to think about the universe and the bigger picture I believe they would see that too.
