After speaking to a very nice young woman today I am struck by the number of people that struggling financially is an embarrassment and a shame reserved for the lowest forms of society. People struggle ever day and for a number of reasons. The key is knowing where to get help and when to reach out. It isn’t a sign of weakness to say I need help. Actually it takes much more strength to say “This is my life and I will make a change”. There is no need to suffer or beat yourself up. Life has already done that… Have faith and know that this too shall pass… Life offers so much more than heartache, misery and pain. Take strength in knowing you are not alone and have faith…Never lose faith!
