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

Take time to ENJOY the peo­ple in your life, between the chal­leng­ing moments

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

When some­one offers help, take it

Keep a list of tasks or errands so you can be spe­cific when ask­ing for help

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.

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.
