A Suprising Turn of Events

Wednesday, July 27, 2011
When the chips are down it's sometimes surprising what you can end up needing. You can end up needing people you thought you outgrew the need for. Recently, while in crisis mode, I found out that there are some people we never outgrow the need for (you just don't know it until faced with something that triggers it). I've been lucky enough to find comfort and support from someone completely unexpected and I am so grateful for it. Years pass and people come and go. Some leave their mark, some fade as if they were never there and some leave more than just their mark and they stay with you long after they've moved on from your life.
You would think approaching someone with a problem after not even hearing their voice in almost a decade, would be awkward, but it wasn't. They could have responded with 'This is unexpected, isn't there someone else you can go to with this?' or simply, 'Why me?' but it wasn't like that. The first response was 'What's up?' as if we just spoke yesterday. What followed was the exchange of two very long emails and peace of mind. They talked me down and gave me insight to the situation that I never would have found without them. It wasn't a magic cure to the situation, but it was a place to start and I am so grateful for the guidance and support from such an unexpected source.
