Timely help from unexpected supporters
When I was hell bent on the idea that nobody supported me, I couldn't see that there was a ton of support coming from folk other than my family.
It seems that we get fixated on how our family should interact or behave with us, and we forget the friendships and community that we've developed over time. I know how heart-wrenching it is to get no response from you family when you're in need.
It pays to just let that be, to hold that expectation of family just a little bit lighter. And look around to where else support might come from. Eventually I discovered that my community was an incredible source of support when the chips were down.
It's the same dynamic in my garden.
