Dear widowed community, I want to ask that you be that friend a widowed person would need to pass through the stormy early days of widowhood. It doesn’t matter if anyone played that role for you in your time or not, please be that friend that’s relied on at this time.
This isn’t just about money, no, this is more than that. Be there for the person. Don’t run around castigating them for mistakes or being vulnerable before you. You must have made same mistake they made, isn’t it better they tap from your experience? Is there any benefit in snitching? Is there any further benefit in tearing down another person whose hand you should ordinarily hold and help?
“There are “friends” who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.”
Proverbs 18:24 NLT.
Yes, don’t be the reason why another widowed person will shed tears of pain. Be the reason why years down the line, he or she looks back and thanks the Lord for you in their lives.
It isn’t such an easy time, please make it easier for someone.
May I ask you to be that friend that sticks closer than a brother to that widowed person. You don’t understand their pain and grief so stop all the unnecessary judging and help them relearn how to live!
Good morning and enjoy your weekend.
