Tonight after church my really good friend asked me if there was anything that he could pray for me about. I told him about my struggles with being single, the anxiety of it, the thoughts of maybe just being single forever, how I’ve tried dating apps, the struggles of people asking about my singleness, and all the other things that go along with it.
He’s my age, only dated one person and married that person, has a kid, and about to have another soon. His response to me was, “If you ever need to talk or pray, just let me know. I’m always here for you.”
He didn’t give me any cliches. He didn’t fake like he knows what I’m going through. He didn’t tell me I should love Jesus more (yes, I’ve been told that before several times.) He just listened and showed me support.
I wish more people would be like this. Instead of trying to be the ultimate fixer of people, just listen and show support.
I pray I can be more like that as well.
Ah... so I'm guessing the video paths don't work for mobile then.
