Recently, I’ve been working with a client on the brink. There have been some very dark moments but I hung in and he hung in and now things have really looked up.
Many of you know I volunteer to visit people in the hospital now. This client reminds me of this woman I met in the hospital some weeks ago. She was terribly ill. Ten days later, I went back to the hospital as scheduled. The woman was still there, but this time she was sitting up, watching TV, looking as if she’d never been very ill in her life.
People are so impatient with each other. They dump people in their life for any reason under the sun. Something fleeting.
It seems it’s more important to pretend there are no shadows in your life, then it is to stand by a friend or a lover as they struggle or puzzle their way through something…or perhaps even fight for their life.
Personally, I have been through some really ugly times. Thankfully I’ve friends who stuck by me. If not, I don’t think this blog would be here.
Have you ever witnessed a remarkable comeback?
