Our Social Network

When we suffer, our close ones suffer.  Whether it’s brother, sister, mother, father, friend, cousin, etc, our suffering goes beyond ourselves and affects the people around you.

Our relationships may go deeper than what you expect.  When there’s something wrong, people pick you up.  Family helps family.  Friends help friends.  Our social network is much stronger than a tweet or message.

Lives become intertwined.

Shared thoughts, experiences, loves, and hates are many things people around you get to know about yourself.  We’ve been put on this Earth to give back to them.  Our second heart beat is our family and friends.  When we suffer, they do.  Even if we don’t see it, there are other people in thought and anguish when one is suffering.  And it’s our opportunity to get our thoughts and feelings out there.

Rather than holding things in, even from your family, who knows you the best, is counterproductive.  We need our family to share our feelings and ideas in the tough times.  Shying away from your family is the last thing you want to do.  Don’t lose contact.  Don’t keep them in the dark.  Remember, with God’s grace and His choice to bring you into this world through your parents!  Give them all the honor and glory, even if you may be polarized from their views and thoughts.  They’ve lived longer than you, so why not take advantage of their wisdom and knowledge?

Once again, go to them, call them, talk with them about your issues and problems.  Ask them for help.  Realize you’ve been wrong in trying to do everything on your own and being isolated from the one’s who truly love you.  If you don’t have family to turn to, talk to friends, and most importantly, give praise to God the Father, who already knows your problems and will help if you put Him first in your life.  You must be willing to give in to your stubbornness…
