LESSONS LEARNED

 

Lean on some­one, right now, this minute

Trust the pro­fes­sion­als but ask ques­tions and tell them your concerns

Take time to ENJOY your loved one, and con­tinue to include her/him in your life

Gather your extended fam­ily and laugh, cry, play, pray, celebrate

When some­one offers help, take it

 

 

The con­nec­tion that we have with oth­ers is an essen­tial resource. The peo­ple in our lives–whether fam­ily mem­bers, church com­mu­nity, co-workers or friends–give us a sense of belong­ing. On Maslow’s Hier­ar­chy of Needs, belong­ing is the third tier, com­ing after phys­i­o­log­i­cal needs and safety needs. It is more impor­tant to humans to belong to a group than to be esteemed by the group. We would rather be the least val­ued mem­ber of a group than to not be in a group at all.

Reach­ing out to the peo­ple in our lives when we are in need is not always easy, but it is of vital impor­tance that we do it. A les­son learned: “lean on some­one, right now, this minute.” Let a friend be there for you, you won’t regret it.
