Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 says, "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work; If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!"
I like these verses, sometimes when you stumble and fall it's so easy to just stay down. The next time you fall it will not hurt because you won't fall so far. But it is those people that have been through what you have, that have had the same hard times that you can look at and say, I can do it. They have went through it and got back up, so I can too! The hard part is putting yourself out there so that you can meet and get to know those people. So I challenge you to put yourself out there, connect with a new friend. You will be amazed at what you have in common and enjoy together, someone that can help you up too!
