Sometimes life deals us some tough blows which can cause us considerable pain.
Often we feel we have to face the music alone, as no one around would be really interested in our problems, simply, because most people have got problems of their own.
We all need at least one good friend.
Someone we trust.
Someone who will listen, while we unload our worries off our chest.
Someone who won’t blab our innermost secrets around the neighbourhood.
Someone who probably can’t solve our problems, but who cares enough to share our concerns.
If we’ve got that type of friend, we are fortunate indeed. If we don’t, then it’s time we did something about developing the type of relationship that will allow us to have a real friend.
Because, there’s no doubt it can be tough if we try and go it alone in this life.
It’s been said, ‘To have a friend, we first need to be a friend’. So there’s a starting point for us. Let’s resolve to do something about it.
I’m Peter Mack and that’s life.
