I am so completely drawn to this song. I'm drawn in to the quiet melancholy of the beginning and then swept away when the beat quickens halfway through. But the theme... I wrestle with it in my mind. Believing you can "fix someone," or even trying to, can lead you into all sorts of unhealthy situations. A person's healing or growth can only come from within and others can be there to bear witness, encourage, uplift, and speak to hope. With another person, or a network of people helping to create a compassionate and safe space, we are more able to leap into our fears and learn to let go. At the very base of our support efforts is the statement that the person you are caring for is worthy of attention. This declaration of worth may be the impetus a person needs to keep strugggling, keep fighting, and to keep searching for answers.
May those who struggle today find the eyes of someone who loves them.
