So I had a rethink about certain areas of my life and I felt ‘well, this ought to have been better but I’m glad it is the way they are now’.
I’m not where I need to be, but thank God I’m not where I used to be. I’m okay, and I’m on my way!- Joyce Meyer
This article may read like it’s easier to give advise when you’re not trapped in a crappy hole. I’d love to see it as a way of being vulnerable and at the same time, feeling indifferent.
Sometimes, we find ourselves in certain situations where we tend to question everything that has happened that led to the position we are now and truth is it’s okay to ask questions. It’s perfectly normal for you to wonder and it’s a good thing to know that there has been a change (maybe one you’re not cool with). It’s also okay to think you’re a pretty good mess and another series of your life is about to start (one that might not be so intriguing). It is okay.
Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable, but they’re never weakness.
I and a good friend of mine went to see our course adviser recently and on our way home, she talked about her feelings and pains and if persons really mean it or rather, if persons really understand her when they say ‘I feel your pain’. We came to a conclusion that not everyone would ‘feel your pain’ but truth is everyone hurts at some point.
We don’t necessarily have to carry a placard with inscriptions like ‘hey! I’m hurt, I’m so pained’ (that was funny). It’s just who we are- humans. And while persons are totally fine with talking freely about what’s going on in their life, others may not be cool with it.
To share your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable; to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength.- Criss Jami
So if you think you’re another pretty good mess, that’s fine too. We all at one point have been there. Beating yourself up doesn’t help. You’d move on and see the beauty Chum. Breathe.
Stay confident lovelies
