The other morning as I was getting ready for work, I hadn’t realized that in his curiosity, my younger son had come to stand beside me…until I knocked him over.
In his scramble to stay on his feet, he made a quick grab at a piece of clothing that was laying on the drawers beside him but they were of no help to him so they both fell to the ground.
Don’t worry, he was fine. Shocked, but it was all good. In no time he was up and gone again!
But the scenario lingered in my mind.
How many times have I, in my efforts not to lose my balance, tried holding onto “things” that couldn’t sustain me?
Over the past few weeks I have been paying special attention to self care and a topic that I on a quest for wholeness and a part of that process has been coming to terms with the fact that I have held onto people, situations and bad habits that were of no benefit to me. A hard pill to swallow but a necessary one.
Sidenote: you won’t be able to get the help you need if you refuse to acknowledge that there is even a problem.
Don’t feel like there is something wrong with you because you have a struggle. We are all struggling in one area or another despite what our perfect timelines portray. Some we are aware of, and others simply go unnoticed because somehow we have learnt to function in our dysfunction.
