Who’s In Your Corner? [with audio]

👆PLAY👆 Listen and read along

Life is a fight. A good fight. We go through the extremes—the ascent of ups and the declivity of downs. Though we don’t choose what we go through in life, we can choose how we go through it and who we go through it with.

One thing fighters have is a corner—fighters get support—they don’t fight alone.

We are not meant to be alone.

So, who are you going through life with?

You need others to help you, and you need to help others.

Who is in your corner?

Your “corner” is your support system. And your support system is built on relationships.

Yes it’s a risk. Relationships are messy. They’re complicated. You could get hurt. But, you can minimize the risk by building a support system that is solid.

What does a solid support system look like? It’s one that is:

  • Based on the right or a common structure. What brought you together (sorority, same age kids)? Are you likeminded? Do you have common values and principles?
  • Formed before your crisis.
  • Built on honesty. Can you be vulnerable and not feel judged? Can you be you?
  • Centered on TRUST. Distinguish between who’s in your circle versus who’s in your corner. Can and will they keep you accountable?
  • Built around fellowship. How can one know how to support you or celebrate you if you don’t share? Bring your life into the light. However, be selective. With the right people you’ll find fellowship.

  1. So true, Dee! 💯

    Life is nothing but a sinusoidal curve, some days you are on the crests and on the other you are lying in the troughs. These are just the “acts” of life, and will keep on occurring. What matters is how we “react” to these “acts” of life, and good friends and relatives can surely help us a lot in that. 😊

    1. Well said Lakshya!!!!! And I like that you classify as “acts”. Life’s offerings are, if nothing less, meant to keep us on our toes, looking to see what’s coming around the next corner. 😊
