Strength

"I can not change what has happened to me, but I can choose not to be reduced by it." - Maya Angelou

I have always believed our strength is determined by how well we give and receive love. 

 

In my weakest moments, I only got back on my feet because I let the people closest to me, love me. It's easy to push people away when we're struggling, and believe all the little voices that like to reassure our fears that no one could truly love us; but as tempting as that is, the only way to let love heal us is to give people the opportunity to, and believe them when they tell us so.

 

There are a lot of people in the world, consumed by their own negativity, who may try to dim your light. They may try to make you feel less than you are, even squash your enthusiasm and drive to be better- but we do not have to be victims. The moment we let these people dictate our ability to be happy and open, we have given away our power. 

 

As for giving love- giving love can be one of the best ways to get out of ourselves. I know that when I am in pain, I sometimes have the tendency to dwell on it/try to fix it/become consumed by it. Giving love when someone needs a friend, being someone else's support system is  a great way to gain perspective and remind ourselves that we are all fighting the good fight. Giving love relentlessly, receiving love from those around us- these are terribly difficult things to do in a world that often advertises hate and brokenness- but that's why I believe it's necessary. 

I have always believed our strength is determined by how well we give and receive love.

Did you hear about the kidnapping at school?

It's fine, he woke up.
