Tears Of Strength

“People cry, not because they’re weak. It’s because they’ve been strong for too long.”

~ Johnny Depp.

Even the strongest people inevitably crack a little with time. In having to be strong for others whilst trying to remain strong for my own sake is proving to be a challenge yet again. I thought I was doing rather well until such reminders started to revive the heartache, the memories and the love once more.

It is okay, to cry. It does after all, clean our tear ducts out! 🙂

In addition, it releases the built up pressure that little bit more.

I often tell my friends, (strangers also) whenever I recognize their struggles, that I am such a good listener that I now have to wear hearing aids. This always makes them smile and perhaps even, laugh. Job done? 🙂

I hope, with time, someone will be able to take my pain away but until then, I shall continue to be here and there, just for you.

It Takes Two To Tango.

These past few weeks have been rather enlightening because I have been reminded, just how disrespectful people can be.

I do not appreciate being watched, looked down at, ignored etc and this is not only on social media either. Sadly.

Many a time I have gone out of my way to help another, to be patient with another, to be there for another yet for the respect not to be returned, is just plain rude. For them to be unwilling to accept me for who I am and the starkness of my honesty, of which contradicts the lies they spew – this can only explain their anger. Haters can go ahead and waste their precious time, hating.

If they cannot find an iota of kindness from within them to pay respect in return or make some room for you, remember that your self worth outweighs theirs by far.

I reserve the right to be comfortable in what I consider to be, MY space. If the respect and patience is not going to be returned,  then watch me walk away.

As simple as that because after all, it takes two to tango. 🙂

In order for one to be comfortable and happier, one has to be willing to lose connections with the “noise” in our lives.

Each & Every Day.

everyday
Make it count.

Whilst it is Mother’s Day, I actually cherish each and every day, and those in my life. As one should.

I feel extremely humbled almost every waking minute, having been given an exceptional second chance to be a daughter, sister, niece as well as a mother. Also, a friend.

Quite simply, I am grateful for the opportunities to be able to annoy you all once more, with my antics! 🙂 🙂 (Patience is a virtue?!)

I am truly honoured and privileged to be graced with the pleasure of your company. More than you realise.

As always, it is with heartfelt thanks to the NHS, their expertise and patience that you too get to share the memories made, being made and those yet to be made.

Just The Way We Are

Once I had to tell someone to “Take me as I am or not at all” because they were trying to control me… I ended up walking away from him, much to his demise.

We all deserve to be respected for who we are, not to be told who to be or what to do,

Last but not least, do not forget one of my favourites quotes of all… By Dr Seuss:

We are amazing, just the way we are. We may not be perfect but we will be perfect for that special someone.
