I subscribed to some daily email alerts and newsletters from Oprah when I signed up for the Life Class. This morning’s thought for the day included a link on finding the right thing to say to a friend who’s lost her place in the world.
I thought that the article might be some great advice to post because I think my friends sometimes don’t know what to say to me or how to interact with me when I’m in a valley.
By the way…on the radio this morning there was a commercial about being there for a friend with a mental illness instead of just ignoring the problem. Signs everywhere today.
So I read the author’s story and when I got to the very end and saw that her plan of action was to tell her friend
“Honey, we are not being threatened by rogue loggers or farmers who want our land. We have a choice when the bell rings at the door: Dive in the hole and shoot arrows…or wave, however uncertainly, and smile.”
