Many of you know I have been writing a self-help book. The development process has been a trial almost as difficult as the life it is about. Nothing worth having comes cheap. Nothing worth keeping is easy.
I’ve had to study myself and others in ways I never really cared to be made aware of.
One thing I have learned that many others already knew is I don’t love or trust easily. I get close to very few people. In fact, some of you still tease me when you reach for me and I say I don’t like to hug. Or I sit from across a room while we hang out. Lol.
I’m working on that by the way. The germs are worth the comfort. 😂😉
I still struggle to allow myself to grow attached or comfortable with things, situations or relationships.
Every time in my life that I have allowed my guard down, or someone close to me, its gone bad or been used against me. I’m optimistic it won’t stay that way. Though, I know thousands can relate. It’s just a part of life.
Being strong and positive doesn’t mean things don’t go wrong. It means faking a smile when you have to and moving forward, whatever it takes. You’re not always strong for you. Many times you’re strong for your surroundings.
I was once so cold and unavailable that God has humbly taught me to allow myself to be vulnerable and supportive of a hurting world. He also taught me there are many people unsaved hurting worse than I ever have.
He has spoken to me and said, If they see you making it, they will believe they can too.
Shout out to the friends and family that get me. Some of you have weathered many storms with me.
It’s because of you, that God keeps giving people like me hope. It’s because of you that I’m blessed to carry any burdens for the world at all.
It’s because of you that I get up and try again.
It’s because of you I am still here.
I may not come around much or say it to you enough, but I closely watch everything and your life is a beautiful representation of love and respect.
I’m thankful to be your witness.
I appreciate you.
