Humpty Dumpty

Life is crazy. Time passes on. I have neglected my blog once again. Sorry. Really, I should be apologizing to myself. For I am also neglecting me too.

I have always been that way. I am the one who is always helping others, picking them up, holding the peices for them, in some cases - putting them back together. Playing the game of Humpty Dumpty.

The truth is - as it always has been - it is hard for me to let people be there for me, to ask for help or just be selfish & put me first. No doubt it is difficult for me to trust others. I feel like I'm a fireman firewoman, putting out fires as I see them appear. Waiting for the next one to ignite.

I cannot save & protect everyone. I know this. For I am not, nor will I ever be, a Savior.

I have been trying to work on my breathing for the last day or so. I think it is important for me to remember how to breath. Truly. Think about it... When is the last time you took a deep breath & actually felt your lungs expand? Yes, breathing is a good thing.

The point is, everyone has things going on. I am no different. It is okay for me to say, "No, I am sorry I cannot help you right now" & the world won't end. Somewhere in my head I know this is the truth. Now, the challenge is getting the rest of me to believe it.

  1. You can say no. It's not easy but with time you will know when you can say no and when you truly need to help. Learning to say no gave me peace because I was just to stressed all the time. Say yes to YOU!

  2. Saying no is a hard thing, even when it's for the best. Sending you encouragement!
