Live Lightly

Facing the fact that we are all struggling does not make you a burden. It does not make you unlovable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It does not make you too sensitive or too needy or worthless. It makes you human. Human being. Everyone struggles. 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 is okay. No one is easy to be around for a full one hundred percent of the time. We may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult or do or say things that make the people around us feel helpless or sad. But those things aren't all of who you are and they certainly don't discount your worth as a person.

The truth is that we can be struggling and still be loved. We can be difficult and still be cared for. We can be less than perfect and still be deserving of compassion and kindness.

And without realising it, I learn a lot of things from someone. In such short period, not only about life, but how it's okay to feel something extraordinary about someone. I learn how to live lightly, easy and full of laugh. In such period of my life, I am completely happy.
