I think we all know people who are ROCKS. (not dumb as a rock!!!)
These rocks are the people who others lean on during the rough times or even just during the normal daily events of life.
I have been very fortunate in my life and have never lived through a major tragedy. That fact combined with my need to be completely independent make it hard for me to let someone else be a rock for me.
However, I do try to be a rock for those around me.
I will do anything I can to help those I know and care about.
But, sometimes, rocks crack.
There are so many forces that combine to cause this and as hard as we try to be strong we can’t always keep the cracks from forming.
Over time the cracks will grow and eventually the rock will wear down.
Lately, I’ve felt like a rock that had a small crack but the crack has gotten bigger and is starting to let in things that I don’t want – self-doubt, sadness, even a sense of loneliness.
I feel like if I’m not strong enough then I let people down when I should be helping them.
I am on a mission to try and rebuild/reinforce my rock. I’m not sure what all that will involve or how long it will take but it is something that needs to happen so that I don’t end up like this –
Do you have a “ROCK” in your life?
Are you the “ROCK” for everyone around you? How do you keep from cracking?
