Why? Why? Why?

Why? Why? Why?


We all know that life has its ups and downs ...

... We expect that, why wouldn’t it? We’re accustom to the rollercoaster ride, as life throws us it’s curved balls and we bat them back as best we can. We’re keeping on in there, keeping fighting through, keeping our heads above water. That’s just the way it is, right? Life knocks us down and we climb back up and carry on, bruised, but not broken.


Sometimes, we have that unexpected breakthrough!

Sometimes, we actually win one! We hit the mark and come away with the prize! Sometimes, everything just falls into place, unexpectedly, but we grasp it with both hands, maximising the opportunity. We smile and we laugh, with family and friends, as we recount it together. We have a new spring in our step, feel energised and ready for the next win!


But what if it’s not like that?

What if the breakthrough never comes? What if we get knocked down and can’t get back up? What if we’re drowning, too far from the shore to swim?


What if the good times are just a distant memory?

You remember playing as a child, laughing and joking with your friends, everything before you ... hopes, dreams and possibilities. Now, though, it just feels like the rug has been pulled out from beneath your feet! ... all that potential evaporated! Somehow, it just doesn’t seem fair.


As you stare through empty eyes you don’t know how to smile...

... you can’t even remember how to laugh.


If this is you, if you’ve been there, or if you're there now, I have good news for you -

It doesn't have to be this way!


However impossible it looks, to go forward right now, you still can, but maybe it’s time to enlist a little help!

Just like a wounded soldier on the battlefield, you need others to rally around and give you some support right now.
You’ve fought an amazing battle, if it were not for your efforts others would have gone down too!

But, right now, you need others... to rally around you and lift up those weary arms, to share the burden.


Maybe it’s our turn to come alongside you ...

to dress the wounds and to set you back on your feet.

Maybe it’s not so much about ‘why?’, but more about ‘when?’
