My generation is gruesomely lonely, but in response, we don’t need another handout, another kind gesture, or a better bible study. We don’t need more people that will merely know our name and address or care for us sporadically and at arms length.
Some days, I wake up with this crazy realization of how wildly fortunate I am. I wake up in a bedroom in between two other bedrooms where two of my favorite people in the entire world have woken up or are still resting. And I walk downstairs, knowing that if I need anything, some more of my favorite people are only a phone call away and would be here with a moment’s notice. And I realize that my biggest struggle is getting in my own way of feeling that safety and love. I’m not so sure why it’s such a difficult task to feel the love you’re so freely offered. But such is the human condition.
