On Our Sleeves : Anchor

What does an anchor mean to you?

For some, the anchor means hope…calm…stability. Think about those people in your life who you can turn to no matter what you’re facing...who are part of your support system. These are your anchors. As we face the many challenges that life brings, our anchors are important to help us steady ourselves, to ground us, to hold on to when the waters are rough.

On the flip side, the anchor can be seen in a negative light. For some an anchor represents a weight, dragging you down. A feeling that you can’t get your head above water, that it might pull you under.

People can feel this way from time to time. But when that heaviness really pulls you down so much that it affects your daily life–that’s when it becomes a concern.
