Being the Person You Needed when you were Struggling
You have suffered.
You have lived through challenging times.
You have experienced invalidation in your lifetime.
You have been told that you were wrong, in some way. Or in many ways.
You have lived through experiences that you wouldn’t wish on anyone.
And yet, here you are. You have survived. You have lived to tell the tale.
But there are still others out there who need to know that the thing that you’ve gone through is get through-able.
They are living it today, and they want to know that you exist.
I can only help people who:
are anxious, depressed, angry and just down out disrespectful and hateful, as I can because I have been all of those things, and moved forward and thrived to be a better person
I can only help people who have wondered about whether or not they bring any value to this world because I have questioned (and recognized) the value that I myself bring to the world.
I can only help people who aren’t sure about whether or not they have what it takes to be a great Husband, Father, Son, Brother and Friend out of myself to the people I love and care about, because I have navigated that same uncertainty and self-doubt, and made it work despite my fears.
In short, I am not only able to help people traverse the things that I myself have gone through,
It is my heart’s deepest calling to do so… and I feel deeply in alignment when I am afforded the opportunity to engage in such activities.
Are you going to tell your story?
Are you going to voice your existence?
Or are the people who are needing to be served by you going to have to keep on guessing as to whether or not someone like them can get through what they’re going through?
Be who you needed when you were younger.
Put your voice out into the world, sooner than later.
Because someone out there needs you to.
As we all need each other, and are here for the betterment of others.
So what are we going to strive for? Are you willing to take the challenge:
And being able to Be the High Impact Person You Needed when You were Young
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.
