I've always been warned not to be full of pride. I think in my extreme thinking I thought that meant no pride at all was the ultimate. "FULL" is the key word in that lesson. Humility mixed with pride is what they meant, not just full of pride alone. I have been trying to think in new ways, I have been really trying to focus on what I like about myself. Not being effected by many taboos or standards, I still find it hard to feel pride. I keep coming back to this thought. In a large way MH has helped me to see that it's okay to feel good about myself, I'm important. I've held peoples hands who I see are now able to reach people who can't relate to me as well. Both of them reach out and lift me back up and remind me of what I once said and felt. Passing time has multiplies those who reach out to help me. Each one of us makes a difference, and I can't disqualify the ME in US. It's not just you, I'm awesome too. I want to disqualify that by saying, "Not that I'm bragging or anything," but I won't
Im working on my list of good characteristics, hopefully I'll form more while I'm trying to accept the ones I have. Each action is like a pebble in a pond or echo on a mountain, touching and resinating with everything it passes through. The pebble has long settled by the time it's impact has slowed down. New and old sayings here are a good example. Someone hears something and repeats it, it becomes a pillar. I've heard things circulate for awhile that I've said, I have no idea the impact I make. It's exponential. And again, it is that way for all of us. We make a good team. I've been trying to make my intentions and hearts passion in line with what I do. Helping other people has been the best therapy for me, from people I just met to old friends, it makes me feel bigger than just myself. Thanks you every ONE for making me feel important.
