Who Are Your People
“We rise by lifting others“ -Robert Ingersoll
All too often, the twists and turns brought on by transition can leave us feeling isolated and alone. Sometimes we stop showing up in the same ways we had before because we just don’t have the capacity. And sometimes, others stop showing up because they simply aren’t sure what to do or say.
While relationships can feel messier during transition, we need the support of others more than ever. We need people who will stick with us regardless of the challenge we face, people that will listen to us process our questions and also challenge us to move forward, people that sit with us in the depths and pick us up when we fall down. These people help us bridge the gap between where we’ve been and where it is we’re going.
Do you know who those people are in your life – professionally and personally? We encourage you to take some time to reflect and write down the names of these people so that when you are in the throws of a transition, you can pull out your list and remind yourself to access the support around you.
