It’s okay to admit it — being the one who everyone relies on gets hard sometimes. It doesn’t make you less amazing or less of a woman. It doesn’t make you weak. It makes you human.
We all have bad days.
It’s okay to accept them for what they are though: just a bad day. Not every day is bad. It’s not a bad life. You are no less because you had a bad day. Pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and move forward. You’ve got this.
We are all fighting a different battle, facing our own challenges, and struggling with different things but we all have one thing in common. We have hopes, dreams, goals, and aspirations and we’re going to keep going until we reach them. And we have too many people relying on us to fail.
Maybe you chose the journey you’re on, or maybe life happened and this is how it played out.
Either way, it’s here now and you’re doing it. You’ve come too far to stop now and there are too many people relying on you.
I know the feeling of wanting to quit…of wanting to crawl under a rock, to hide so no one can find me and ask me for anything else. I know the feeling of not having any more of yourself to give and yet someone else is asking for a piece of you.
Everyone wants a piece of you and no one gets how thin you’re already spread.
When you have those moments remember there are others in your shoes. We’re here. We’re fighting the same battles. We’re exhausted. We’re moody.
We want to quit just like you, but we won’t because we’ve come too far to give up now and too many people are relying on us.
When you want to break down, go ahead. Go ahead and cry.
Go ahead and take that nap. Go for a run. Read a book. Do whatever you need to do to be the best you possible.
I know you feel selfish. I know you feel like you should just be able to keep going. In reality, though, you’re human and sometimes you need a break and that’s okay. We can’t always be superwoman.
No matter where you are in this journey of life someone sees you.
Someone knows how hard you’re working. And there’s a whole army of us out here doing it with you. Look around and you’ll see you’re not alone. And next time you feel like giving up know we’re there with you but you just have to keep going.
