“Strong”

Ok I’m tired of being strong.

I’m tired of being the reliable one.

I’m tired of being the saving grace.

Frankly I’m just tired.

Being gifted and talented does not give you license to use me until you use me up.

Don’t get me wrong…I’m thankful that God has blessed me to be able to help others.

My question is who will be there for me?

Who can I go to?

Who do I rely on?

God is all I have.

God is all I need.

I’m only strong because He makes me strong.

The same resources that I rely on are available to you.

My faith and constant prayer is what gives me the ability to keep going.

Sometimes the strong one wants a break.

Sometimes I want to have a chance to be vulnerable.

Sometimes I want to just be me.

Sometimes I want to be normal.

Sometimes I want to be free.

  1. Being strong is something we value as children of God, but it’s easy to become drained and overwhelmed. Your post is a reminder that we all need a recharge now and then. Love it!

  2. As an empath, I can really relate to this! Sometimes I feel as though I give all my energy to others and save none for myself. It can be exhausting. I try to remind myself “you can’t pour from an empty cup.” Meaning you can’t help others if you don’t help yourself first.
