Sometimes We Need….
We don’t always have to be strong
Sometimes our strength is expressed in being vulnerable.
Sometimes we need to fall apart to
Re-group and stay on track.
We all have days when we cannot push any harder, cannot hold back self-doubt,
Cannot stop focusing on fear, cannot be strong.
There are days when we cannot focus on being responsible
Sometimes we cry in front of people we expose our tiredness, irritability, or anger.
Those days are okay
Part of taking care of ourselves means, we give ourselves permission to “fall apart”. When we need to.
We do not need to be perpetual towers of strength
We ARE strong.
We have proven that our strength will continue if we allow us the courage to feel scared, weak, and vulnerable when we need to experience those feelings.
Today, Allah helps me to know that it is okay to allow myself to be human.
Allah helps me not to feel guilty or punish myself when I need to “fall apart.”
Abu Hurairah (RA) narrated that Rasulullah (SAW) said: “Never is a believer afflicted with discomfort, illness, anxiety, grief worry or even the prick of a thorn, unless he has his sins expiated for him.” (Al-Bukhari)
