Real talk: life is rough sometimes. Choppy, like the waves rolling over the tops of us as we struggle to grab a breath of air before succumbing to the power of the waves pulling us under. And most people, in those moments, simply choose to tread water instead of actively figuring out a way to get out of the storms of life. If you know anything about this situation, you will realize that eventually you will run out of energy and drown.
Our society puts so much emphasis on keeping buttoned up, being independent, handling it yourself. Heck, we brag when we are too busy at work to take a lunch. But really, many people are drowning.
Here’s my challenge to you today: be open and be vulnerable. Many people around you are swimming in rough seas this time of year. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. Encourage those around you that they aren’t alone. You might be the life preserver that they needed to keep them from drowning.
