Be the real friend I need

Today the featured video is Celtic Women, Walk Beside Me because that is a very powerful message when you are hurting. PTSD can do a lot of things to you but if you have someone walking beside you, it makes it hurt less. That is a gift they will never really understand but it is one that can save your future.


We've all been fed up with doom and gloom messages about how many take their own lives, leaving behind families with a lifetime of burden to carry. Just because they were not given the chance to help someone they loved they have to pay the price for the loss. We've heard it from friends wondering why someone they cared about would not tell them they were hurting and needed so help from them. What kind of a relationship is that? Families and friends are supposed to be people you trust. Do you trust them or not? Or is it more a matter of you not trusting yourself because you believe you are beyond help? Maybe it is because you don't think they will try to help you? Maybe you are ashamed you need help at all?

Whatever your reason is, or the one you use to prevent you from asking the people in your life to help save your life, it is pure bullshit! Stop making excuses and start making meaningful choices that will also touch the people in your life.

The only question you should be asking is if you could be the real friend they need and walk beside them...or not. How do you know they won't if you never give them the chance?

Remember, it is your life...get in and drive it!

Walk Beside Me
Celtic Woman 

A child begins with one single step
Then walks a million miles
And though these wings are not ready yet
I will try to fly
My eyes can't see
My arms can't reach
I need strength when I'm weak
I need your faith in me
Don't walk in front of me
I was not born to follow
Don't walk behind me
We were all born to lead
Don't walk without me
I might need you tomorrow
Walk right beside me
Be the real friend I need
If you break small stones, one at a time
You will move that whole mountain
If you climb each rainbow, it's gold that you'll find
And shelter from the rain
My ears can't hear
My heart can't beat
It needs strength when I'm weak
I need your faith in me
Don't walk in front of me
I was not born to follow
Don't walk behind me
We were all born to lead
Don't walk without me
I might need you tomorrow
Walk right beside me
Be the real friend I need
Don't walk in front of me
I was not born to follow
Don't walk behind me
We were all born to lead
Don't walk without me
I might need you tomorrow
Walk right beside me
Be the real friend I need
Walk right beside me
Be the real friend I need
