I can do this
I got it
(Feeling weak, not feeling strong enough)
I get it, the fear is still there. You can’t let it paralyze you.
What if I can’t?
That’s why we’re here, that’s why you invited us here…when you don’t feel strong enough, we lift you up
So many times I thought I couldn’t make it, this guy was there for me
I just helped her find the strength she already had
And now we are all here supporting you
Whether you like it or not
ABC’s a million little things…this show!! It’s like they are in my head sometimes…only more concise and articulate.
A couple months back, I was invited to join a women’s group on social media. The goal of the group: to support each other, to show up for one another in whatever way we feel comfortable. Gatherings are offered, though mostly we post and comment uplifting messages and advice.
The reason I mention this is that in this unraveling I experienced, I found myself, I found my people, and I found that lifting others makes me happy as well. But it doesn’t happen all by itself…we have to invite people into our circle, our world.
You can’t have the reward if you don’t take the risk. There’s a quote that sums it up beautifully:
When we are hurt or in pain, it’s tough to see the truth in this, I know. I truly believe it though, and the version of myself that I used to be was scared to take a leap, afraid of rejection, of judgment. These days, I’m still afraid, yet it doesn’t stop me the way it used to.
So I invite you all to cheer me on, lift me up, allow me to be part of your circle, and to let me show you your superpowers when you just can’t find them. It’s scary and it’s tough, and sometimes feels a little weird…just try it.
