Don’t ever be afraid of a new adventure in your life,
don’t ever be afraid to show your vulnerability,
that doesn’t make you weaker
it makes you stronger
Sail away, navigator,
in your own adventure,
to discover who you really are
and remember, leave the Ego behind..
Weak are the ones that don’t want to make a change in their life, although they have all the tools to do it, but they choose to ignore it. They think they are not strong. They don’t want to disappoint others, so they end up disappointing themselves, getting stuck in a life situation they keep saying they don’t deserve.
Strong are the ones who take a step up and recognizes what is wrong with themselves, search for help and keep on taking care of themselves. So they continue to grow, to move forward.
Once i was weak, but some time ago, i became strong. I took a step up and searched for help for my depression. Even though i don’t talk so much about it to people around me, i write and try to learn more about it, through inspiring bloggers and lecturers. Because i still feel there is a lot of lack of credibility given to people with mental issues.
Today i am even stronger. I dare to show my emotions in a healthy and respectfull way, to show who i really am. I found strategies to deal with my emotions.
I dared to sail away in the dark, into the unknown, with the light shining inside of me. I droped all my fears and worries in the wide ocean before my trip.
Where this trip will take me, it doesn’t really matter..as long as i always search for a star, the moon on the horizon and find a lighthouse, so they can show me the way..as long as i have God in my heart, i trust everything will be as He wishes..and everything will be alright..
p.s. When i mention adventure, is in a metaphorical way, a journey that begins with introspection. The real adventure is to find out and learn about yourself, where you need to act, or change, in order to improve.
