Today’s insight journey led me to the idea that there is no harm in admitting that something is hard.
Admitting when things are hard has been a challenge for me over the years. I guess I grew up believing that I had to be the absolute best in every way, and that part of being the best meant that I should not admit that anything was hard. I had to give the impression that everything came easily and naturally to me.
How foolishly I perceived things at times back then.
The ironic thing, though, is that no matter how much I have matured and come to know that I was not created to be perfect and that admitting that something is hard does not take anything away from me, occasionally, I still have a hard time admitting that something is hard. And in turn, I also have a hard time admitting that I need help.
The beautiful thing about it now is that I no longer allow that challenge to hold me prisoner. Instead, I face it and press through it, telling myself that it’s ok to say that something is hard, effectively removing unnecessary pressure from myself.
