Wednesday wonders: support network

Things are difficult at the moment; I can’t really explain why it’s just a part of the situation. However I am SO grateful that I have had a network of people around me. This network have consisted of regularly texting as well as meeting up with me for walks or coffee. Sometimes this allows me to talk through the issues going on but sometimes it’s just nice to spend time talking about nothing.

Do you have a support network?

I think one of the most important elements of a support network is having a range of people that you can turn to at different times. I think I would definitely say that there are certain people I would go to for different areas of my life. But there are also different people who look out for me and make those first steps.

That’s the other important aspect of support networks that they have to be two sided. Times when we need to take the step to seek support from others and times when we need to accept support that is being offered to us. It’s so easy for us to hide when we need to talk or to hide when others are talking to us and yet we need to take responsibility.

We also provide that support for others. That’s where it becomes a network.

  1. Thanks so much for sharing this, Helen. It so chimes with me, having had to ask for support of a dear friend this week. It was so special being able to let her help me out, having helped her so much recently, but also reciprocated in the past many times emotionally m, practically and prayerfully. It’s not always so easy to be on the receiving end, is it? God bless you. Jxx
