Facts that Nobody Told You

Today, I remind myself that when I remain calm , I can easily manage my thoughts , attitude and emotions. Things become clear and logical, and handling difficult or tense situation becomes less stressful.

 

The past 2 months have been very difficult for me. Those are my 60 days of nightmares. I almost took my life for being so depressed, afraid, and hopeless. I’ve battled with suicidal thoughts each day.

 

NOBODY TOLD ME that having friends are GEMS in life. Before, I thought I am okay without any friends. That I can live without them. That I can handle everything without having any close friends. But I was wrong. They are the ones who stick and stand by me during my darkest days. They never left me while I’m in that battle. Thinking about what they did for me, and just being there for me, makes the tears fall from my eyes. I WAS WRONG. It is truly NO MAN IS AN ISLAND. I love them. They are the best people in world. Without them, I’m probably gone…and my little kids will be left alone.

 

After all these realizations, I always include them in my prayers. I am so blessed and thankful to have them, because aside from my family who are always there for me no matter what, these friends…these closest friends that I have, they’ve shared their time just to be with me, to comfort me, to literally protect me and prayed for my safety.

 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

 

 

Dear Friend,
I would like to pause for a minute to say THANK YOU. You listen when I have a problem. You catch me when I’m about to fall. You bring so much joy into my life. Thanks for being my friend through it all.
Love, Shari

 

 

There are a lot of things we should be thankful for and here’s my TOP 3:

  1. My life
  2. My family
  3. My friends

 

I’m so blessed! God is Good!

 

What about you?

Losing Someone You Love

This is one of my favorite songs to listen especially when I am alone, or at night, or whenever I feel incomplete. It’s written by  the American singer-songwriter, Jenn Bostic, which is composed for her father who died when she was a little girl. The song is released in 2012.

 

I find the song very powerful and emotional. It feels like your heart is being pricked with a pin in every word of the lyrics. I actually feel like crying every time I hear the song.

 

Losing someone in your life is really difficult. Shadows of the memories… The thought of not feeling or seeing that person or loved one EVER again… The sadness that feels like forever…

 

Here’s Donna Taggart’s version of the song:
