Today’s Gem of Insight #160

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.

It may sound rather simple, but sometimes it’s the simplest things that yield the greatest benefit. be blessed. #lovebythedrop
