Like me, sometime you might want to have a magic wand in order to save people you love or to change one’s situation.
Like me, sometime you might want to have the right words, to say the right thing at the right time.
Like me, sometime you might feel helpless in front of sadness and tears.
Like me, sometime you might wish you could have super powers or you might think that you are not doing enough to help the ones in need.
But let me tell you something.
When I was down, when I was out of control, when I would only pray for God to take me away, when I felt completely empty and lost, it’s to know that you were all around me, which saved me. There was no right word, no magic wand that could have taken away the pain. It’s to have family and friends around, ready to listen to the same words again and again. It’s to have my parents beside me, holding my hands, listening to my empty cries. It’s you, by your presence and your silence, your love and your friendship, who saved me, who helped me to stand back on my two feet and get going.
One does not need many words to feel safe.
Listen, love and be there.
