There was a gentle tap on my door and when I opened it I discovered it was a friend of mine. She was having a down day and needed someone who would take the time and listen, not many people do the listening bit do they? After a cup of coffee she was ready to face the world again. Her family are scattered and she felt vulnerable and alone. I’m sure we all feel like that at times.
Following a phone call to a friend in Sussex we felt the need to air our feelings. She hasn’t been too well recently and promised she wouldn’t moan about anything, but I do think that a moan is necessary sometimes. There are countless times I’ve been asked how I am, and I reply fine, when in fact I’m not fine. Sometimes I don’t want to show a stiff upper lip. Let it go I say, just once in a while.
