You’re never truly alone in all this, but it’s easy to forget that, especially when we’re physically apart.
There’s a proverb that says “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together” and it’s truer than ever right now.
Scarcity, desperation and despair can make it feel like we have to go faster than ever, but this isn’t a sprint race and no one is forcing you to go it alone.
What can we do with that information though?
If you’re feeling alone, reach out to connect with those on similar journeys, you might be surprised how willing others are to help, particularly those with a shared destination in mind. I’m always here, and so are countless others.
If you’re able to help, remember that it’s not always easy for others to reach out when they're feeling lost and alone. Give unconditionally, offer ways to be ‘together’ and support those that need it most, even if they don’t show it.
If we all do this, pretty soon we will look back and see how far we have come together.
