Do No Harm.. Love Yourself

Alone

 

Now if you listen closely

I’ll tell you what I know

Storm clouds are gathering

The wind is gonna blow

The race of man is suffering

And I can hear the moan,

‘Cause nobody,

But nobody

Can make it out here alone.

 

This is an excerpt from a poem entitled "Alone" written by Maya Angelou.   It is the basic need of humans to have people around them that this poem stresses. To see the world slowly moving away from the value that others play in our lives is a very sad thing indeed.

And it is extremely important for the cancer patient to recognize that he/she needs to have people who will come along side and be there for them.  This is not a time to be alone.  It is healthy  to verbalize what you are feeling and talk about it with someone you can trust. I recognize that there may be times when you do not want to talk.  But just having people around that care and will listen is extremely helpful to your well being and ultimately your healing.
