Let’s face it, life is tough right now. It doesn’t matter if you’re a millionaire or just scraping by, everyone has problems. The world is suffering from a social and moral epidemic of political correctness without responsibility, coupled with an entitlement attitude that takes the “poor me” to astronomic proportions.
You are not alone.
In your fears and your frustrations, you are not alone.
In your anxiousness and uncertainty, you are not alone.
In your anger and your bitterness, you are not alone.
In all of these things, you are not alone. Those that have gone before you in the history of time have suffered or endured similar trials. Those that will come may endure harder than you are enduring. And rest assured that everyone who walks the face of this earth is carrying some burden you cannot see, even if that burden is their own lack of ability to feel anything.
Be encouraged therefore, and walk away from that which no longer serves you. Don’t live another day with the illusion that you can love enough for the both of you, that if you only bend over backwards a little more, it will work out, or with the thought that it’s for the best. If you are living with abuse, walk away. Please don’t make any more excuses for anyone else; know that you ARE enough, and those who cannot see it, cannot invest in it with a heart of love and time and tenderness; those who only break you down – they are not worth all the effort you pour into trying. YOU ARE enough. You do not have the right to assert your will upon anyone, you have the right only to voice it and then respect their choices. You don’t have the right to force anyone to stay, or to force anyone to go. You don’t have the right to force yourself to stay when all you feel is put down, worthless and sinking.
YOU. ARE. ENOUGH.
