Words n Thoughts

I wish I had saved it but I read something this week, I can't quote it but the gist was basically sometimes it's not that people don't want to be there for you or understand you but sometimes it's just too much for them to be able to handle someone else's troubles. I can kinda understand that, especially if you are like me, who is so cautious of not being a burden or wahala on people, asking for favors is just a long ting for me. Then I also ran into a tumblr post (sidebar - I must be the only person who doesn't tumbl, the most tumbling I do is clicking on links people post or if a friend sends me something) which I think was a good read. I also like the fact that the person who wrote it had in parentheses besides their name - Internal Acceptance Movement. I think Internal Acceptance is such a huge thing to have and is also missing in a lot of people in our generation - even when they think they have it. It's also seems to be the major theme in my Lenten Journey (another topic, another day). Anyways this was what it said:

"The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around — and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness"
I hope this helps/speaks out/encourages someone out there. Have a wonderful week ahead guys!

This resonated with me. Especially, the struggling and less than perfect statements. Also, I need to be a part of the 'Internal Acceptance Movement' because even though I THINK I have it, I sometimes don't and I have to remind myself constantly.

Internal Acceptance Movement pls where do I sign up. Somedays I'm self accepting, somedays I'm not...I guess that's all part of the not being perfect and that being okay...I just wish the self accepting days were wayyyy more than the non-accepting days.

Thanks for sharing!

Awesome, hopefully you truly now see that you are never a burden when you are venting or complaining about something to me...
