Having a friend who understands us is an important part of the healing process. Friendship is important! Talking through our concerns, sharing stories, and connecting on a human level is exactly what we need to feel whole and normal. Especially when fighting cancer, surviving physical challenges and accepting our scars as beautiful. 💕🎵
But sometimes, in an effort to make things easier on those around us, we withdraw from the world. I encourage you not to do that, friends. Lean on your support system. And if you don't have friends like you--someone who has walked a similar road--it is possible to find them online. Joining an online forum changed my life, and your friends are waiting for you!
You never know. Someone out there might be waiting to hear YOUR story.
