I See You
I want you to know that I see you. I see the person who is in pain everyday, physical pain, emotional pain, and mental pain. I see that you are struggling to hold yourself together even though the pain seems to be pulling you down. I see you fall apart in situations where you would have normally been strong. I see you even though no one really understands what is going on (even those closest to you). I see you crying because nothing seems to be easing your pain and though you have everything in the world you’d give anything to make the pain go away. I get it now. I didn’t really get it before, but I really and truly get it now and I want you to know that I see you. I see that you pray and smile. I see a lot more now that I would have shrugged off before. Appointments abound yet you cannot seem to make sense of the pain (physical, mental, and emotional). Just when you think you've made sense of the pain, it decides not to make sense of you. I see that you are tired and angry and confused. I get it. I get it. I get it.
