Scary movies are WAY more fun when shared with a friend (especially a friend who has popcorn!) Frightening stories are immeasurably better when shared with a friend (perhaps around a campfire with s’mores.) I guess everybody knows that buddies make being scared better.
But when the fear is not just a movie or story – when the fear is real – it’s REALLY important to let a friend help you carry the fear. Two are stronger. Two are braver. Two are wiser. Two are safer. The struggle is real, the journey is hard, but you don’t need to do it alone.
Friends, please do not lose heart. May the challenges in the world today provoke us to draw closer together. There will always be reasons to weep, to mourn, and reasons to fear. But together, all of these feelings are better. Please share your fear with a friend (like popcorn!)
When the journey has you scared
Remember fear ought to be shared
