This morning, looking at pictures of friends of mine who have been through a rocky patch and have come through it, stronger together, made me feel such hope. How often do we give up, not realising that if there is to be change for the better, we ourselves have to make the change?
How often do we wish others would change, yet we are the lever to move them? Not with force but by attraction, by taking the first step forward, hard as it may seem.
This weekend I have heard of three other friends going through similar rocky patches in their lives. All I can wish for them is the same type of journey that brings them out with their partners at the other side, together and far stronger than before.
I too need to make a few changes, so I must also start step by step on them, trusting myself enough to follow through.
