She was undeniably compassionate- almost excessively. When others require ample amounts of attention due to their difficulties, or obstacles she always lent an open ear. One that would be understanding, and also ease some of their burden. This constant attack on her energy left her empty, and drained. Void of all energy, unable to recover herself, the need of her assistance still prevalent, to help ease the burden of others.
Her heart simply felt as though it was imploding unable to help others, to be sympathetic or even understanding. She wanted to feel normal, and able to provide her full love and heart to others. Her purpose could not be fulfilled without her vibrancy or sparkle. Unconscious to the fact that she was hurt and needed the warmth, love and tenderness that she had once provided others.
We always find solace in talking to others, to become aware that we are not alone. We are not the only one’s who may be struggling along our path. It takes persistence to achieve success. We may fail 757 times but the 758 might lead to our success. This is why we figure out what it is we are meant to do and persevere no matter how many times we must fall down. When we show others our failures, they are able to compare with their own lives and help provide us with comfort and reassurance, that nothing great is achieved without difficulty. She was having difficulty finding the reassurance she needed to proceed and develop her inner strength. Her explanation of her sentiments was too difficult to fully share, and unload onto the shoulders of others. She dug deep inside and buried them. The hole became overflowing with memories that were overly agonizing, and too damaging to share with others who were oblivious to her truth. It was an ongoing internal battle until she found the missing element.
A space and supportive community that inspire greatness, develop character, grow inner strength, and enhance qualities that already reside within each and everyone who simply show up. They simply show up and remain open in heart and mind to the experiences and knowledge of others. A place to share energy, and transform dark into light. To grow both inside and out. It is a place that has a magic quality within its walls that illuminates even the darkest of places. We tap into awareness with breath, tranquility in stillness and find roots in the present moment happiness that can be ours if we simply let go.
Although she still has the overwhelm that first tried to drag her under, she has developed the muscles she needs and found a support system to help her battle the swells within. She no longer has to feel alone, depleted and without.
