Let’s start something with our friends.
You know that person who is on your heart to reach out to? You’re going to do it this week. If you can’t think of someone to reach out to, put it on your heart that someone be revealed to you. Ask The Universe for guidance, “Who can I reach out to? What friend or loved one in my circle could use a kind text, email, or call this week?”
Listen to Fearless 5 Podcast #48 here on Anchor.
As I mentioned in the last podcast, I had a helluva week. A bad week. A week that had me seriously questioning if I’m a complete failure, why am I even here, did God /The Universe forget about me, etc. Lots of sobbing. It sucked.
But it also wasn’t the whole week. There were some bright spots.
One of which was a letter from a friend. It was actually a random message on Facebook from a high school friend that made its way into my life right in the middle of all that aforementioned hell that was going on.
My friend sent me a message that she’d thought of me a lot lately and needed to tell me some things she’d wanted to tell me. She said that we hadn’t been close, but that this was her fault. She wanted to connect, apologize for us not having had a deeper friendship, and that she was sorry. This particular person owes me nothing. No apology was needed, wanted, or expected. But the message was so heartfelt, that it made me cry. Especially one amazing line she wrote:
“I also remember a sadness about you that my teenage self didn’t know how to process. Seeing the parts of your story that you’ve chosen to share on social media, I’m guessing there was was a lot happening in your world then.”
Just this level of honesty, connection, and emotional responsibility helped me so much this week. I come from a background where such things are never given. I am STILL trying to heal. She continues with an even more amazing line:
“There are times when I’ve just wanted to reach through time and hug the child that was the person in front of me today.”
This is where I tear up. I feel seen. I feel known. Those who OWE me an apology will never be capable of delivering it. But the one who didn’t even need to give it — SAW ME.
I received this as a 40-year-old woman who has been doing good inner child work for a year now. It felt like a beautiful hug from the Universe, God, Spirit — whatever you want to call it.
So it’s no accident if you have a little voice nagging you to reach out to someone in your life. Do it. Reach out. Do it today or this week. You will make a difference, I promise.
