I recently watched a show about zombies.
During this certain zombie apocalypse, one man isolated himself.
And he went absolutely crazy hyper-focusing on one thing.
He lost all his relationships.
He lost his personality.
He lost himself.
Even when people he knew DID come back around, he was so lost inside his own grief, regret and pain that he didn’t even recognize them.
Although he was never bitten, he too became a zombie.
My point is this: Don’t isolate yourself.
If you are struggling (with placing, hoping, waiting, wondering, whatever…) find a listening ear. Find a friend. Reach out.
A couple weeks ago, a good friend and infertility survivor sent a brave message out to a few friends asking for help. She was having a hard time and needed “her species”.
A group of us went to lunch.
We were frustrated together.
We gave each other loving advice, one friend to another.
We shared our joys.
We shared our concerns.
We held each other’s babies.
This is my baby snuggling face. Hee hee.
I believe suffering alone in silence, isolating yourself, does not do anyone any good. It denies you validation and support from people who genuinely know how you feel as well as robs your friends the opportunity to serve you.
Reach out and find a listening ear no matter what your struggle is.
Don’t become a zombie.
