“We impress people with our strengths, but we connect with people through our weaknesses.” – Craig Groeschel
One of the motivating factors behind starting this blog was to feel less alone and help others feel less alone in the beautiful, imperfect messiness of motherhood and life.
The beauty, is that I’ve found that I can’t feel less alone in my struggles without others simultaneously feeling less alone. When I connect with someone with my words over a true human experience, it’s comforting to me, and I would assume comforting to that person too.
Not everyone will connect with my words and experiences, and this is a known risk that I had to take when starting the blog. For a self-described people-pleaser, it pushes major buttons of mine to know that my words might inadvertently offend someone or make someone think less of me.
The thing is, I’m willing to accept any judgment that may come from those that disagree with me for the sweet reward of finding people that get and accept me for who I am at my core.
I’m willing to accept the risk of failure in exchange for being seen, heard, and accepted for who I truly am. Isn’t that really what we are all looking for?
I’m lucky enough to collaborate with a fellow blogger this week at Chaotic and Caffeinated. She and I share some of the same inner struggles, and she took the time to interview me about how I conquer the negativity.
I’m not alone guys! None of us ever really are.
