WARMTH

Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord.
(Jeremiah 1:8 KJV) A verse relatable to the message I am sharing today. May are the times we are faced with anxiety and the first thing that comes to our minds is ; “we will not make it”. But is it true? I highly doubt.

Have you ever seen how a child feels hugging their mother after school? The joy that comes with that? They forget the monsters that they were facing in school. That bad teacher, that bully, that girl / boy who said no. They feel that there is someone who cares. But when we grow up, we tend to deviate to the notion that we can do it all on our own.

And when the going gets tough, we’re left to bear the burden. Which is a notion that I’d like to demestify. We should allow ourselves to be vulnerable, weak, weary and have a support system that gets us through. It won’t hurt saying I’m weak. It won’t hurt asking for help.

Especially for us gents. We tend to view asking for help as a weak thing and those who do so we brand them the name “simp”. “A man shouldn’t cry, a man shouldn’t show weakness, a man should be strong” Yet deep down the man is torn. Hurting. With heavy burdens to bear.

As I finish, I’d like to quote H_art the band on their new song wait for you : “when you feel your world caving in
it’s ok to be afraid
when you’re overwhelmed by mistakes
it’s ok not to be ok
coz when you’re feeling down i’ll be there
and i’ll hold you down, i’ll hold you
and when you feel like running away
i’ll wait for you, i’ll wait for you
i’ll wait for you, i’ll wait for you
i’ll wait for you, i’ll wait for you
i’ll wait for you, i’ll wait for you” which I think sums up my piece 🌺
