Surround yourself with loved ones. They can be the best and safest support in the times when you need it most. Surrounding yourself with the people who love you relieves the weight you carry in your soul, and in that way, the sorrows are shared among those who love you, because that is also a way to remain in the Lord. See those who matter to you as a great family of God, without separating friendships, family members or co-workers, remember that we are all children of God.

“You, on the other hand, man of God, flee from all that, and strive to follow justice, pity, Faith, love, perseverance and humility.” Timothy 6:11

It is therefore very important to remember that if you have Faith in Christ, everything will be much easier for you, since that way you entrust your soul to the Blessed Sacrament and you are certain that His plan will include nothing more and nothing less than only the best for you, which you must remember that does not mean that there will be no obstacles in your path.

“If I have the gift of prophecy and understand all the mysteries and possess all knowledge, and if I have a Faith that manages to move mountains, but I lack love, I am nothing.” Corinthians 13: 2

This concept is clinging to that of Faith, since full trust in the Lord greatly feeds our Faith.
