Strong Because Of You.

I'm strong because of you, my friends.
I'm strong because of your calls and messages.
I'm strong because you bring me cupcakes just to cheer me up.
I'm strong because you visit.
You ask me to get pancakes.
You invite me to brunch.
You sit with me, drink wine, and watch movies.
It makes me stronger when I feel so weak.

I'm strong because of you, my friends.
I'm strong because you ask me if I want to take a walk. 
You pretend you really need one
But I know it's for me.
We get outside in the fresh air.
We walk through the fields and through the trees.
I'm stronger because of it.

I'm strong because of you, my friends.
I'm strong because you distract me from my thoughts.
You allow me to forget the loneliness.
You know I don't want to talk about it.
So we don't.
That makes me stronger.

In the quiet of solitude
I don't feel strong at all.
But because of you, my friends
I'm strong.

  4. This is wonderful! Also, remember that you are strong because YOU ARE STRONG. Your support system simply enhances everything within you that you already have! (sometimes it can just be hard to find)
