Do you remember that song? “Lean on me … when you’re not strong … I’ll be your friend … I’ll help you carry on …” It was written by Bill Withers in 1972 and is still being played, and no wonder. The message is right there in the words, no pussy-footing around. I also think of Carole King’s “You’ve Got a Friend.” Same idea.
None of us exists in a vacuum. We need the support of others.
