This is what we do on random afternoons.
I’m a therapist, so it’s second nature for me to say this; Having support is crucial. When the going gets rough we rely on support structures to____________. Fill in the blank. I leave a blank because “support” means different things to different people.
I have learned over the years what type of support I need. For me, support structures are loved ones who provide comfort, accept, and challenge me… hear me, respect me, but most importantly… understand me. All we ever want is to be understood, am I right? Can I get an AMEN? Aunt CeeCee, my older sister ( or “sistor” as we say endearingly to one another) is one of my many and main support structures that I am blessed to have. She visits me on lonely afternoons when I need some adult conversation!! Although the adult conversations usually turn into silly moments. 🙂
What type of support helps you? What does support mean to you? These are critical questions we meed to evaluate from time to time.
