Dear Friend, You are Loved.

sunDearest Friend,

I know things are hard right now. Incredibly hard.  It feels like everything is closing in around you and it’ll never get better.  I know that you aren’t yourself.  I can feel it in the little things you say and it makes my heart so sad.  I hate seeing you hurt and knowing that I’m so far away and I can’t help.

I’ve been there.  I know the feeling where it feels like the sky is dark and the sun is gone.  Where everything makes your heart feel heavy and it feels like every smile is a fake-because it is.  You put your face on so the ones you love don’t hurt because you’re hurting.  It hurts to pretend that you’re happy when all you want to do is go to sleep.

But I promise, I promise it gets better.

Depression isn’t forever.  Illness isn’t forever. Sadness isn’t forever.

Yes, there are setbacks but you just get up and keep going.

Keep the faith that you will find something that works and you will feel well again. Keep the faith that you can get through this.  Keep the faith that this will come to an end and life as you knew it will begin again.

Remember that you are loved and that you have an army of friends behind you to support you and you want you to be well.

When I feel down and crappy, I love listening to this song. Because every storm DOES run out of rain.  It ends and whether you see it or not, there is always a rainbow on the other side waiting for you.

I’m here for you. Cheering, praying, hoping.  Always.

Love,
Jess

 

 

“Every Storm (Runs Out Of Rain)” Gary Allan

 

So you’re standing in the middle of the thunder and lightning
I know you’re feeling like you just can’t win, but you’re trying
It’s hard to keep on keepin’ on, when you’re being pushed around
Don’t even know which way is up, you just keep spinning down, ’round, down…

Every storm runs, runs out of rain
Just like every dark night turns into day
Every heartache will fade away
Just like every storm runs, runs out of rain

So hold your head up and tell yourself that there’s something more
And walk out that door,
Go find a new rose, don’t be afraid of the thorns
‘Cause we all have thorns
Just put your feet up to the edge, put your face in the wind
And when you fall back down, keep on rememberin’

Every storm runs, runs out of rain
Just like every dark night turns into day
Every heartache will fade away
Just like every storm runs, runs out of rain

It’s gonna run out of pain
It’s gonna run out of sting
It’s gonna leave you alone
It’s gonna set you free
Set you free

Every storm runs, runs out of rain
Just like every dark night turns into day
Every heartache will fade away
Just like every storm runs, runs out of rain

It’s gonna set you free,
It’s gonna run out of pain,
It’s gonna set you free
