Help comes in many forms

I received help today – from my family and my therapist.  It’s a little strange that people can confide in a stranger about matters that are so serious – life and death – that are uncomfortable with those closest to you.  I wonder why that is.

Perhaps it’s a dis-interest, or distance maintained by the therapist.  That creates a ‘vacuum’ of sorts, that then goes on to be filled with conversation.  I don’t know.  But we do talk to strangers a lot.  In the shops, or a gathering.  We feel a need to share an understanding of the world or events.

Next time you’re in a shop, strike up a conversation with someone.  See where it takes you.
