Opening up and blossoming
Friendship and support networks are really important for our mental wellbeing. We shouldn’t take them for granted and sometimes we need to take a little time to nurture them. At The Nightingale we know the importance of sharing our feelings with others, which gives great comfort and relief.
We have watched friendship grow and develop between cancer patients and many continue to support one another remotely, waiting for the time when they can do so face to face. Some have told me that they can talk openly and freely to other cancer patients because of their shared experiences. Often they don’t want to talk to family members because they don’t want to worry or burden then.
It is amazing to see people open up and blossom and I believe this is what The Nightingale facilitates.
Friends are especially important during times of crisis, particularly right now as we navigate our way back from COVID 19.
