We Need Each Other

by Ryan Krzykowski

A very close friend from my coaching past suffered the loss of his son last week, and over the weekend I traveled to Oklahoma for the service they had for him.  The world is broken, life can be brutally difficult, and there’s no way to change that fact or make it easier.  In the midst of all the sad and broken, we have the hope of knowing a God who not only provides His presence, but has created and positioned us to support each other.

God doesn’t intend for you to handle all the pain and stress in your life by yourself. We were wired for each other. We need each other.

– Rick Warren

Life doesn’t make any sense without interdependence. We need each other, and the sooner we learn that, the better for us all.

– Erik Erikson

Each one of us has lived through some devastation, some loneliness, some weather superstorm or spiritual superstorm, when we look at each other we must say, I understand. I understand how you feel because I have been there myself. We must support each other and empathize with each other because each of us is more alike than we are unalike.

– Maya Angelou

Holiness grows so fast where there is kindness. The world is lost for want of sweetness and kindness. Do not forget we need each other.

– Mother Teresa


There are people in my life who I know would do anything for me, who would show up for me no matter what.  I’m making it a point over the next couple months to thank those people, letting them know how grateful I am for them.
