I feel like my life mission is to let people know they’re accepted, loved and cherished just the way they are. (Unless they’re murderers) I think I’m in this world to tell people, it’s ok to be broken, it’s completely safe and healthy to feel whatever they’re feeling. Away from judgment, pride and criticism.
I want to give people as much as space and time that’s needed.
I want to show respect to difficult ‘people’(sorry I meant to say emotions)
Just as I was thinking how vulnerability is my favorite word but even more than that... my favorite lifestyle. (Because it’s real, it’s warm, it’s open and honest)
Someone recently came up to me and asked me; if I was back to normal now.
What did that mean?
Just because I was smiling to her at that moment, did that mean I stopped grieving.
Is grieving not normal?
I struggled and still struggle to find words.
Hope you can see the pressure that’s been put on me by that sentence.
I wondered if that sentence made me kinda feel Guilt because I was grieving?
Like I already didn’t have enough pain.
But this mindset is very far from my beliefs.
It’s not the God I’m worshiping. He’s very different.
He hurts with the broken. He hugs the weak. Accepts them all. Loves at all times.
And also, I wonder who would be normal in Gods eyes anyway. 🧐
That sentence was such a shock. I almost heard my own heartbreaking one more time. Once more I wanted to avoid her. I wanted to either flee or explain grieving to her by screaming to her face.
Does that sounds loving? Not at all.
I knew neither of these was me.
Deep down I actually felt sorry for her.
I was sorry because she seemed that she probably didn’t give her ‘real’ emotions any room in her life either. At least that’s what I thought after that question.
This encourages me now even more to say; “Vulnerability is a great strength” that’s what makes us real. That’s the bridge we build our relationships on.
Yes! My dad(my best friend) died in front my eyes. It hurt like hell. It still does.
I went through great trauma.
I’m not normal. But that’s ok.
We never see in the Bible that we have to be normal.
Was Jesus normal? (Continues in comments) 👇🏻
