Who helps you get back up each time you fall? Tuesday December 17, 2013

Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That's why it's a comfort to go hand in hand. Emily Kimbrough.

Who helps you get back up each time you fall?

Who do you run ideas past, before you send or express them?

Who do you call as your 'go to' person when you are unsure of a direction or just need support?

Hopefully you may have them as your Moodscope buddies...and you do not even have to make contact with them - they may already have called you due to your score? FAB!!

I know as an only child, with both parents now dead, and being self employed, that days can go by without me having to make conversation with anyone. Which can deepen the mood of myself and the office.

And if things are going well - that is fine.

If however I have been triggered by something - more likely someone - then I'll need an outlet.

An 'outlet person', that has compassion and whose listening skills make me feel 'listened to', is a rare beast - well worth their weight in gold for sure.

The greatest human need is to help others...and you cannot help another without helping yourself...sounds like a win/win situation to me.

So whose hand can you help up today?


Who helped you up today?

So true! I am going thru a very difficult time in being physically ill with an accompanying servere depression. I simply would not be functional with out my friends. Family is no help, so friends are my silver and God is my gold. If you can't hang on anymore let someone else hang on for you!

I would agree they help put things in perspective and hope I do the same for them

EmJae, what an encouraging reply! My family same & friends often too busy doing inane shopping & stuff for Christmas,but Jesus always listens, always cares and always fact I wish they would see that He is the reason for the season and slow down for Christ Mass.Being in plaster and in a wheelchair is an unexpected bonus this Dec! Bless you!

My husband now but there was a time when it was me who had to pull myself up each time which was hard. Through experience I am very wary of who I share information with and what I tell friends.

Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That's why it's a comfort to go hand in hand. - Emily Kimbrough. HOW KIND. Thx for the reminder. Not sure why I maintain this outer armour of perfection. When I am most certainly not perfect! Yes, I need to incorporate this into my daily demeanour. A humility, a readiness to pardon and be pardoned. This is my 1st post or reply. Cyndi B. is my "go to" person. She's how I found moodscope in the first place. I'm one lucky dawg to even know her. THANK YOU.
