When I Need To "Fall Apart"

We don't always have to be strong to be strong.

Sometimes our strength is expressed in being vulnerable.

Sometimes we need to fall apart to regroup and stay on track.

We all have days when we cannot push any harder, cannot hold back self-doubt, cannot stop focusing on fear, cannot be strong.

There are days when we cannot focus on being responsible.

Occasionally, we don't want to get out of our pajamas.

Sometimes we cry in front of people, we expose our tiredness, irritability, or anger.

Those days are okay. They are just okay.

Part of taking care of ourselves means we give ourselves permission to "fall apart" when we need to.

We do not need to be perpetual towers of strength.

We ARE strong. We have proven that.

Our strength will continue if we allow ourselves the courage to feel scared, weak, and vulnerable when we need to experience those feelings.

Today, help me to know that is it okay to allow myself to be human.
Help me not to feel guilty or punish myself when I need to "fall apart."

  3. Hi Kimmy,
    Thank you for posting this, some days I think I try to hard to keep it all together when I need to take that time to let it all out, so many changes this past year for me need to be felt and not buried.
    Love and Light
