In my darkest hour, I received more help from a friend who had previously walked the same road that I was currently on. We were now fraternity brothers. And it somehow made me feel better to know that he got it. He only said a few things, but they stuck – and made a difference. I have used the words he shared to help others.
If you’ve been through some stuff and made it, share it. The wisdom you gained by surviving can benefit the guy who is coming along behind you. It hurts to hurt alone. Reach out to someone who could use a pick-me-up and tell them how you got through it.
Not only will you help them, you will help you. Our healing is not complete until we help heal another.
If you got through it, you just gotta share it. Don’t hesitate to give what you know.
Jesus does that for us. He is close to you if you are hurting, He’s been there. He knows how you feel and can get you through.
