The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden.
It doesn’t make you unlovable or undesirable or undeserving of care.
It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy…It makes you human.
Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart.
During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around — and that’s okay.
No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time.
Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult.
And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad.
But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being.
The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved.
You can be difficult and still be cared for.
You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness…
I don’t care who you are.
Whether you’re my boss, a coworker, a friend, client, one of my Children or my Spouse – what comes out of your mouth, needs to be backed up by your actions.
Don’t tell me you’re going to do something – then not do it.
Don’t tell me you’re not going to do something – then do it anyways.
When you don’t follow up your words with actions, it makes me question every.last.thing that comes out of your mouth…
You say you’re going to do a job for me.
You say I’m an excellent worker.
You say you love me.
You say I’m a great friend.
You say you’d never screw me over.
You say I look nice.
You say youre commited to xyz.
When I believe you, and your action show me different – I lose all trust in you.
“Sorry” only works so many times…
Fool me once, shame on you – fool me twice, shame on ME!
If you’re going to talk the talk, you better be walking the walk, ‘cos if you aren’t – you’ll soon be looking at the back of me…..
