The Delusion of Support
Often I have fallen for the words of those around me, ‘I’m here to support you if you need me.’
I have trusted those words to be true. Only, on the rare occasion where I reach out for support – they look perplexed and move on to discuss a topic about themselves.
Lately, I’ve found this challenging as there have been times I’ve needed a friend and…
I’m not saying that all friends are unreliable; I’m simply highlighting that the support offered and provided are quite contrasting. My experience is that people make offers of help because it sounds good. However, their intentions or rather actions don’t match up.
I’m learning to identify genuine offers of support. Refining my willpower and determination to complete this solo and to keep in mind that experiencing delusion wastes time.
Try believing in yourself more often than not and know that it is not the be-all and end-all when friends fail to support you.
Take a step back and reflect, identify how you can help yourself and don’t waste time sitting and brooding over what you expected from a friendship.
