Not alone


Unexpectedly, you lose your job. (Or a loved one. Or something or someone important to you.) What do you do next?

Keep living. There is nothing else you can do. Try to survive. Struggle to get up again. Life is plenty of unexpected events. I lost family members and very close friends unexpectedly. The pain is too deep. It takes a lot of time to recover. But with time you learn to live with that pain, and treasure the good memories those lives left. I unexpectedly lost my health. I tried to adjust my life to that situation. It was hard. But I had the help of my family and my best friend. Years after that I lost the job I loved due to my lack of health. Another blow. Again I had my family and my friends with me. Months after that my mom had an ictus and got paralysed. Now I have the free time I wouldn’t have in other circumstances to take care of her. I don’t know what I’d do if I lose my whole family and my friends and I would be compelled to face life completely alone. But even in that situation I know I’ll have the best support. I have faith in God. I try to pray every day. I know He won’t leave me alone. He never did.
