I Will Stand By You
I have so many friends having a hard time right now. All for various reasons, but hard times, nonetheless.
It breaks my heart.
I'm a fixer. It's what I do. When someone is suffering or tormented, I want to fix it. I want to make it better. I want to take all their pain away.
I hate that I can't always do that. I hate admitting that most things are beyond my control. I hate knowing that I can't give people what they so desperately want. I hate knowing that I can't protect people from the harsh words of others. I hate that my friends are living through tough times, that I can't take away.
But, I can offer a hug. I can give them a shoulder to cry on. I can listen to their troubles.
If that fails...I'm always willing to share my hidden stash of chocolate... :)
