Such a simple word.... but such a hard action for some....
You would think that as you age, then automatically you would "grow.."
Yes, physically we do grow; however, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually some of us do not grow.
Growth is so much more than the physical.
It really amazes me how some people remain "stuck"
The harder thing is that we sometimes allow that person to keep us stuck as well.
We patiently wait for them to grow....yet as we wait for them... we become.....stuck as well.
It is so hard to let go of something or someone who has been there with you while you have grown;however, we have to wake up and realize if this person or thing is allowing us to grow or causing us to remain "stuck." Secondly we have to let go of the blame that we are leaving this person behind. Nooo...that's not true. You are not leaving the person behind. That person is leaving and has left themselves behind. To some this may sound cruel, but please know that I am not saying you get where you need to be and leave them high and dry. No, but what I am saying is that you can love someone from afar. You can pray for them to grow, but you don't have to hinder your growth because someone else doesn't recognize your worth, his worth, or her worth.
I've learned to say I love you but I love me more. If I am not where I need to be mentally and spiritually, then I can't perform at my best. I can't be who or what God has called me to be.
I can't be there for someone else if I am not there for me........
It really saddens me to see someone with great potential and not perform at their best.
It really saddens me to see someone with so many talents not use them....
It really saddens me to see and know that some of us are so afraid to grow.....
