What it Means to Have Support From People I Have Never Met


How can you trust what they say?

For they could be telling you lies

They could be making everything up!

You don’t KNOW them!

This is the fear of the people I HAVE met

Who find it so difficult to understand that there are many people in this world

Who are good, kind, loving, generous, spirits

And you don’t have to physically meet them to know them


People who have traveled a lifetime

And finally found the piece of their soul that was missing

The piece that makes heart connections

And Yes – EVEN with souls they have never met in the flesh!

These are the people I talk to through a computer screen

They laugh, they cry, they try to cheer you up

They tell their truth

They go to the depths of the darkness

to show you it’s possible to go to the light


They “like” you, and they are “like” you

They let you know that you are not alone in this world

They validate the feelings that you have felt your whole lifetime

and probably been made fun of for most of it

They understand when you hurt

And they truly want to make you feel better

They never tell you, you CAN’T

they always believe that you can – and you do!


Yeah – so for me

The thing I struggle with is who gives a hoot if it’s all lies

all made up?

I can tell you right now that if I’m going to be lied to

I darn sure would prefer it to be everything I wrote about above than anything else!

How can the love that is spread here possibly hurt?


So what does it mean to me to have this kind of support from people I have never met?

More than I can possibly explain

But the one thing that I do believe is

I think the community here is full of people

who have been searching for something

probably for most of their lives

I believe this searching made them appear different

And though they certainly have made “flesh” connections

they have never had the support

that they feel here


And if it’s all fake…

Then I say BRAVO!!!

I couldn’t have made up a more loving community if I tried!!


Thank you for your love, kindness, support and generosity!!!  I am proud to say I know you, even though I have never met you, in the flesh. ❤

  1. Dear Lorrie! How did you know? Your words ring so true….loudly and clearly! I try to explain this ‘feeling’ to others, who are not necessarily part of the blogging world. This community was a hidden treasure before I discovered it. Everyone is supportive and encouraging and after all, isn’t that what we all need in this life? For others to believe that ‘we can’ so that ‘we do’ and express all that is in us. Becoming a part of this blogging world has been such a wonderful and powerful experience for me. It’s what I needed to light that fire that I had allowed to remain just a flicker for a long time. Now, I’m writing more than ever and reading some really beautiful stuff here! This is a beautiful post and I think you have said it well. So nice to get to know you without ever have seen you face-to-face. Have a blessing-filled evening dear Lorrie! 🙂 ❤


    1. Sylvia…Thank you so much! I really thought that many others must feel the same way…I am happy to know that you are one of those people 🙂 I have been supported beyond my wildest dreams here in this forum and, like you, have been so very inspired to write. I am so happy we connected ❤


      1. Lorrie…I couldn’t be happier myself! Every time you post or comment, I can feel your very evident positive energy. It’s like…when I read something you wrote, I can hear you reading it, even though I’ve never heard your voice and it seems as though you are smiling through your posts. It’s a delightful thing to be able to do that. I am thrilled about my connection with you! ❤


        1. Ohhhh! You just made me cry! But good tears, Sylvia!! Thank you so much for being able to “hear” me! I think there are many people in this world who want just that….to be heard! I was so positive as a child…and then I withdrew from life and suffered many abuses….many of them self-inflicted. But I have healed (well…still in the process!!) and I know the power of positive!!! The fact that you can hear it pleases me so!!
          Much love….and many many blessings to you dear Sylvia! ❤


          1. Oh Lorrie! I guess we’ll be crying together in spirit. Yes..I definitely hear you loud and clear and I can definitely feel all the positive vibes that flow freely from you. I think you are one of the most positive people I’ve had the pleasure of encountering in this community. Much love and abundant blessings to you dear Lorrie! ❤


            1. Yes, Sylvia…we will cry together!!!! But good tears…the kind that clean out the bad energy and leave behind clear faith!! I am so grateful for the beautiful words you just wrote to me…my heart is truly touched. I am Blessitude!!!


              1. Again, sorry for the late responses. I meant every word dear Lorrie! I don’t know if you realize it, but you are truly a blessing with all of the wonderful energy and positiveness that seems to pour from you. So grateful for our connection! Blessings to you always!


  2. Lorrie, I love what you wrote and feel very connected to people I have never met. I also feel like i love some of them ever though I have never met them face to face. They are connections from someone I know personally though and that makes it somehow safer. This is the way we both connected here through Carolyn at “The Hurt Healer” I think. God is good and does that, it’s his specialty. I am glad we connected


    1. And what a perfect specialty!!! 🙂 🙂 I am so happy we connected…my life has been so blessed. Every day I see more and more what we as humans are here for. One thing I know…we are supposed to LOVE! We are supposed to make connections with fellow beings…I couldn’t be more grateful 🙂 I so look forward to learning more about you!! 🙂 ❤


  3. Oh how true…(and well said)…this is! I too still want to believe that what we see in the bio. pics and what we hear in their comments is very real. I know that’s what I try to be, and hope I get that back in return.

    I believe in the scripture…”by their fruits you shall know them.” I realize that involves seeing how they live their lives, as it applies to either righteous or unrighteous. But I also believe in the scripture “as a man is in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7).

    Whatever we think, whatever we feel inside, it will eventually come forth from us. As with any proverb, it isn’t “iron-clad,” and some may fool us at first. But 99% of the time, we learn sooner or later who they really are.

    I believe that’s why the Lord prizes so highly what’s in a man’s heart. It is the true gage of who he is, and the Father, like all of us, is looking for sincerity!

    Very sweet post, Lorrie…



    1. Thanks, Steve. An oldie you found here! I agree with most of what you said. But there is a little part of me that thinks there are people who have NO idea how they sound. I know quite a few who sound so negative and mean…but at their core I can see a good heart. I think these people would be appalled to learn how they present themselves. I don’t know what the answer is, and sometimes I want to say something to them. But I don’t. Instead I say a prayer and move on. Thanks for always showing your support…I really appreciate it!! 🙂

      1. I get what you are saying, Lorrie, and I agree with the one fact for sure. Some people have no idea that they always “lead” their remarks with negativity!

        It is great that you say a prayer for them. But depending on the person and the relationship you have with them, you could try to point up their “nasty nature.”

        If they are good “at their core,” they may appreciate your remarks. It just a thought…

        And you know you’re a “favorite” of mine! You’re always welcome for my comments and support! I always love to hear what you have to say…

        Take care and enjoy the day!



        1. Believe me, Steve, I’ve never been accused of holding back! 🙂 But now I try to choose my battles (don’t even like implying they are battles) and prefer to speak with actions instead of words 🙂 Sometimes I’m successful…sometimes not! Have a blessed day!

          1. I like your approach, Lorrie. I most admire someone who doesn’t hold things back, but doesn’t just “plow through people” either.

            You aren’t like that at all…

            I like the quote: “Preach a sermon each day. If necessary, use words!”

            And picking battles is the only way to best spend your energy. Some you win, some you don’t. But always, you try!
