None of us go through life alone. We are surrounded by friends and family that we rely on, sometime just to make it through the day. I know this is true for me. I have wonderful people who care about me enough to put up with me.
What I worry about is leaning on them too much. I worry that I am being selfish, taking advantage of the offered help. If I point out these feelings, they tend to get irritated with me. People who love you tend to be funny that way. Instead I do what any good friend or loved one would do, I make the same effort for them that they have made for me.
I make it a point to listen, to offer a shoulder, to offer a hand, or just a hug because they look like they needed it.
In the end that is really all I can do to repay the debt I owe those who give so much.
