And here’s to another day granted another day to be thankful for!
This is my life lesson learning #2
It’s about Me; just not all about Me!
Let me see, hmm… (scratches my own head) what is the best way to state it’s about me without coming off as self this and self that, basically narcissistic? After only 55 words into this post and several hours later, was I able to come up with a neutral response. My answer to this disturbing question is, “You can’t. You just simply can’t.”
Wait! There’s more. Ok, let’s say there’s a little bit of self in all of us, rite? Ok, and so what determines the tipping of the scale?
This lesson is teaching me to remain aware of the fact that my sharing is not at all about me; it’s about sharing my life experiences. Maybe it bring awareness to others; maybe not. In life, I understand that when I refer to the importance of self-care, self-love, self-respect and a ton of others, it doesn’t necessarily make me a narcissist, it just reminds me that I matter in the equation of “us.” (to be explained in my upcoming E-Book)
To that end, it’s all about balance guys.
Pardon me, if I hadn’t already mentioned in the previous post, there will always be learning to do, continuously. And personal growth. I am just thankful that I am open to the receiving of it.
So moving on, yes, my daughter got caught up in grown folks issues; which is not cool. She’s a fantastic young woman now and I pray the affects of my emotional instability doesn’t steer her down a path of (here comes that word again) self-destruction. That one little four letter word holds so much depth. I use it quite often if you haven’t already noticed. Oh this is gonna be good. The more I share the more I care. Why? Because it is becoming clearer to me that my journey (little ol’ me) has purpose. Continue to learn and continue to grow.
I really appreciate your time. I’ve written a story that is very similar to that of my own, you can check it out here>>>> The Triumph In Me . I’d appreciate that too.
As always catch you next time! Remember Sharing is Caring (go ahead it’s ok to share to your social media) someone may need to be in on this.
