Lean On Me

37 Comments

Sometimes things are a lot harder than we can handle, and sometimes we don’t know what to do to help ourself. We all have pain and sorrow. Its better to share your load and reduce the pain.

I want you to know, if you are hurting, and if there is something going on, that I am here for you. You can lean on me if you need anything at all. It is always nice to have that someone you can lean on, no matter what you are going through.

It is nice to have someone there, that even if they are having a hard time, you can still count on them, to help you no matter what. I want to be that person for you.

Just remember through all life’s challenges and through it all, I will be here for you to help you.

All you have to do is lean on me, take that first step, and the rest we will figure it out as it comes along.

I want this blog to be a safe haven for you to come and explore your thoughts, your feelings, your growth, your life. A place where you feel safe to share, to care and to tap into those parts of yourself you didn’t even know you could experience.

In my strive to make this blog better for you the readers, I keep adding to the content, to the topics as I see fit. But, you as the reader have all the power. I want you to let me know what you want to see more often here on Positive Provocations. Feel free to make suggestions for topics I can write about, for questions you need answers for.

Let me be your friend. Let me help you share your load. Let me help you with your pain.

Together we can make such beautiful positive additions to our lives.

I’m right here. Always.

With Immense Love and Gratitude,
~Zeenat~

  1. This is really beautiful, Z. And really it’s what the world needs more than anything. We need more people willing to be good friends – willing to help each other, listen to each other, and love one another. Thank you for being willing to be such a good friend. I hope many others follow your lead.

    There is a song called “Lean on Me” from my culture which is all about being true friends. A line from that song is this:

    “Lean on me. When you’re not strong. I’ll help you through. I’ll help you carry on.”

    The song is a powerful message of friendship, and so is this post. Thank you for being a friend to the world.

    • HI Jay,
      I love the words to “lean on me” too! It is indeed a message in friendship and love.
      I wish and hope this message is received by all and spread far and wide. Who knows when and where someone needs a shoulder to lean on. I’m just making myself available.
      Thank you fro sharing your beautiful thoughts here Jay.
      Much love~

  2. Zeenat, This is is exactly what I needed to hear this very moment. You are so beautiful. Thank you so much. Love, Sandra

  4. Lean on me was the song I thought of when I read this. Friendship is such a gift – the friendship that is not about besting one another or judgment or conditions. Sometimes it takes a rough spot in life to realize who is a friend and who is not – and sometimes that is what it takes for people to seek out friendship. It seems that it is increasingly difficult for people to ask for help – I wonder if it is because they don’t think people are there to be their friends or if it is because it may be perceived as weak to seek help or to lean on someone?

    Beautiful post.

    • HI The Exception!
      I agree with you….it is getting more difficult for people to ask for help…not for any other reason, but cause people think, putting up a brave front is the way to gain respect. Or that asking for help might make them seem weak, which God forbid is such a bad trait. ….
      I think hiding behind that facade of “everything is fine” gets us nowhere…except into depression. Hence lending my shoulder to cry on is my little way of telling everyone who lands on this blog…that hey, you dont need to hide from yourself. Face your fears….come share your pain with me. I might be able to help.
      Thank you for your loving comment.
      Much love~

  5. Hi Zeenat

    A simple, yet such a powerfully moving message. So many people in the world have so many friends and family members, but when push comes to shove, they don’t really have anyone to depend on, or count on for help or support.

    So your message and this space is just beautiful and so love filled – thank you, and know I am here for you too always :)

    • HI Evita,
      thank you for your warm support.
      I know what you mean…many people are surrounded by 100s of people everyday, yet feel so lonely. I just hope this blog space can prove to be a safe haven for all those people ….and let them out of their loneliness.
      Thank you fro your loving comment here.
      Much love~

  6. Hi Zeenat,

    This is amazing. I work with a lot of people with depression (and have been there myself) and often the thing which causes the most despair is being lonely. Not necesarily alone, often surrounded by loving and caring family and friends, but feeling completely unable to talk to anyone, completely unable to find someone that may understand, and complete hopelessness that they ever will.
    I would imagine this post will give people like that a huge ray of hope, and provide people like me with a place to feel calm, peaceful and happy.
    Many thanks,
    Kate.

  7. Hi Z,
    First, since my personal motto is butterflies and glitter and my heart is wide open full of love..your photo is incredible–speaks to my heart on many levels!
    And your message is powerful..I love it! In my life, I am the one many lean on, and I have amazing energy so am pleased to help. I want to know how may I serve you best..always..
    However, I make the distinction between lean on and carry…you can lean on me as long as you like, but I cannot carry anyone and I’ve found that there are some that expect that, they’d rather displace their accountability so they don’t have to do the ‘work”…The old me would carry until I broke..the new me realizes we are not made to carry, we are made to love..and I love fully with my entire being…as do you:)

    • Hi Joy,
      You make an excellent point…there is a very thin line between lean and carry which a person can pain can cross. But as loving helping coaches and friends we can steer them int he right direction. They need our help and we can see beyond their immediate pain…thereby are able to help them.
      So in other words, now that you are strong..you will definitely be able to see and handle when someone is going from leaning to carrying. Its gets easier and more intuitive with each person you lend your shoulder to.
      We are love…full and final :)
      Much love~

  8. I am! :)
    Thanks for the virtual shoulder.
    Vishal.

  9. Beautiful Zeenat! What a loving, compassionate and generous post. You continue to be the world’s mother, taking care of all who need it. I am grateful for everything you do, and all of who you are.

    Likewise, please know that if you ever need anything, you can lean on me (and us, I’m sure). You are loved beyond measure.

    • Hi My Joyful Angel,
      Youre such a breath of fresh air. Thank you fro your generous offer and your gracious heart. I will surely keep you in mind in my time of need…and even otherwise :)
      Lots of love to you too sweetie~

    • Hi Jonathan,
      This is something i feel so deeply about. I just cant see people sad or upset….I feel like its my divine job to help them feel better. And knowing myself I know I will go to great lengths to do so. I hope people start feeling comfortable enough to share and be loved.
      Thank you for your beautiful comment here.
      Much Love~

  19. Hi Zeenat, beautiful words “Lean on Me!”. Its so strange that all of us have this in our minds and hearts for our loved ones. What makes you different from all of us is that you can articulate your feelings in such beautiful words which is God’s gift to you. These words got tears in my eyes as i have been trying to make my loved one see what exactly i feel for him for over a year now and i have just failed at it.. it hurts when you want to give all your love to that one person and he just doesnt want it..

  20. Dear Zeenat, I am behind as you can see but still enjoying your gorgeous presence and energy from my Inbox and from my feeds. Thank you for such a simple and beautiful post! Truth be told, I went off my vegan diet and have now been feeling sick for 2 days from eating sushi – I am never again eating sushi, that’s what I keep telling myself with all the anger in the world – well, not all the anger, I did save some for my poor sweet husband!! – sigh! Maybe dealing with self-guilt, self-blame, self-regret over small stuff. That’d be a very personal post and no one probably deals with things as hard as I do but I’d love to know your approach on how to not beat up on one self over small stuff….Others may have written about it but I want to hear YOUR VOICE! Lots of love to you!

  21. I suppose this is my second time here, and I am already in love with all the positivity around! :-)

    This post comes from the heart and reaches many of us too!

    Regards,
    Sourav.
