Pink Birthday

Sometimes when we're sad or facing a situation that can't be changed we just need someone to be there for us. Someone to let us know that we're not alone in it.

And as a girl, I get this. I get that sometimes just being with someone is enough.

But sometimes our guy friends and siblings don't. (Am I right?) And I know it's hard for you guys to do n o t h i n g when you could be trying to cheer us up or fix the problem, but sometimes life isn't that simple. It's not as simple as just making the sadness go away or fixing a problem.

It's something we all need to learn.

I recently heard an Adventures in Odyssey (they're great, right?) about this very thing. It was from Album 55 and it was called To Mend or Repair. If you'd like to listen to it please do and tell me what you thought of it!

To be honest, it made me cry. So go listen to it. :P

  1. I totally gotcha, Ashley. I love just /being/ with people sometimes. As an INFJ, I have a tendency to want to fix things and problems and help people -- but sometimes, I just have to remember that being there for a person is quite enough.

    Friends are so wonderful.

    (Oh, I love Odyssey too. I accidentally stopped listening about a year ago but I still love them to death. :D)

    1. Yes great thoughts, Amanda! It's knowing when you can try and fix something or just be there with the person. It definitely depends on the situation.

      Yes, I love them too! There are certain episodes that just hit you right between the eyes, you know?

      Thanks for the comment!
