You Are Not Alone
By Bernadette A. Moyer
Each life comes attached as we are born attached to so many others. We start with one family and eventually go on and create yet another family. When we are older and wiser we come to understand that we are all connected. We are not alone.
We are not born alone and we do not die alone. We have family, we have friends and we have faith. There is nothing that we encounter in life where someone else has not experienced it. It could be we share in the same joys, we share in the same loves, and we share in the same loss, in the same heartaches and in the same tearful moments. Our love is shared. Our life is shared. We are not alone.
Whatever you may be going through, whatever you may be feeling, someone somewhere else has already been there. They survived it and you will too.
Each one of us in on a shared journey …
Our lives are not perfect little packages assigned to just us. They are messy parts that often overlap with other messy parts and other messy people. There is no true, perfect and absolute world that is only filled with love and all that is good. There is a shared life and shared experiences, and not all of it is pretty.
Sometimes because of what we are currently feeling or currently going through, it is easy to feel like we are the only ones. Support groups help us when we seek out others who are going through what we are currently going through.
There is no such thing as a perfect life; there is no one on the face of this earth that will have 100% of happy days. When we fully embrace that we are not alone, whatever is causing us grief and strife is shared and therefore we learn that “pain shared is pain divided.”
“Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.” Helen Keller

This really spoke to something I have dealt with since estrangement. The feeling that we are alone … and approaching our senior years.
I know what you have written is true. And we are blessed to have people in our lives who love us and spend time with us.
As always… Thank you Bernadette 💕
