In this world, we all go through ups and downs. Not everything is as easy as we want it to be and while we are strong, sometimes we need to embrace our weaknesses.
On the days when you feel like you’re weaker than ever and unable to put on a happy face, embrace it. Let those negative feelings wash over you and really allow yourself to experience all that is happening within your head. If you’re exhausted, take a break.
You don’t have to be strong all the time. There will be moments when being strong is not possible and you are not defined by those moments. You are not alone and you will get through all that is before you.
Let yourself be weak sometimes, it is a good reminder of how far you’ve come. Not only will it show you just how appreciative you should be for your strength but it will also allow others to see a new side of you. Those who care for you properly will be there for you when you’re vulnerable. They will make sure that you’re still able to get through the things you’re facing.
You don’t have to go through this alone, you have people in your life who are willing to be there when no one else is. These people will not judge you for your weak moments, and they won’t use them against you. They will brush your hair away from your face and let you lean on them when you need a good cry.
Just because you’re tired doesn’t mean you should give up, you will be back on your feet shortly. Allow yourself a moment to scream and really let out all the things you’ve been locking within. Only through letting yourself feel can you get your strength back where it needs to be.
When you’re at your weakest remember that your courage is a good guide. It will allow you to find a way through all that is before you and help you to understand what you’re facing. Don’t let people make you feel bad for needing to take some time for yourself. You are only human like the rest of us. As humans, we are not perfect.
Once all is said and done, you will find your sense of strength again. You will rise back up and soar through all you’ve faced. In moments of weakness, there is nowhere to go but up and up you will go. Rising from the ashes is a lot more do-able than you could ever imagine. And, always remember, when life feels too hard to stand… kneel.
