You’ll need more than us. You’ll need more and better. You’ll need other people. You’ll need people to help you process, people to help you let go, people to help you remember what’s true, and people to help you forget what’s lies. You’ll need the stories and advice of people with grey hair or white hair or no hair at all. Don’t buy the lie that suggests they have nothing to offer or nothing to say- they were young once too. They are stories still going, and they’ve seen the places you will go. They’ve been stuck at times as well, just like you and me and everyone.
You’ll need coffee shops and sunsets and road trips. Airplanes and passports and new songs and old songs, but people more than anything else. You will need other people, and you will need to be that other person to someone else, a living breathing screaming invitation to believe better things.
We’re saying the story doesn’t end here, that the air in your lungs is there for a reason. Perhaps we’re all in the business of better endings, you as much as us, the business of redemption. Yours and mine and all the characters around us, and perhaps that bigger thing. I’ll steal from Bono here and tell you that I believe we’re far from alone in this, that God’s been at this for a long time, this business of buying things back, making things new.
