Hey you made it! I am glad I can borrow your time for about 15 minutes. I wanted to speak on that one supportive friend you have that no matter what you are going through, they are there to always help you through it. Many of us have a lot of people to depend on but more often than not most of us only have a few that can fill that "shoulder to lean on, support system" void.
Let's listen together and think about the friend that helps the most, they deserve all of the love you can give them. These friends are the ones that never want anything in return but your friendship. That alone is hard to come by in 2023, the world has grown to be "out for self". It's like you hold the door open and they just walk right in, without saying a thank you. It's all about what "I NEED", what "I WANT", "HOW DOES YOUR PRESENCE, BENEFIT ME" It truly is a sad reality.
It feels like if you have a slight dilemma or personal internal problems like mental health or physical deficiencies. No one seems to have time for you until it is too late. THAT IS WHY, I felt this episode needed to happen because even though I'm a tough individual, I myself have days where I need a shoulder. Never feel like you are weak for needing help, we are only human and humans need support to get back up and stand tall. So without keeping you from this special episode, sit back and talk it out with me.
Embrace the power of emotional, financial, and physical support in nurturing meaningful friendships. Whether it's lending an empathetic ear, extending a helping hand, or simply being present, your support can make a significant impact in someone's life. Let's all be the supportive friend who fosters a community of kindness and compassion. Tune in to our podcast and be inspired to pay it forward, one act of support at a time!
