Weakness...why does it sound like such an ugly word?
Admitting to those around us that we are feeling weak in the moment make us feel vulnerable but the truth is, you are not along in this feeling. A majority of us will have moments in our life where we just feel weak and less than who we are.
I am often weak; I give into temptations, I let the frustration in the moment consume me and I often don't handle what's placed in front of me the right way. But the truth is, that weakness in the moment should never make me feel like less of a parent. I am human and I am completely imperfect....I am okay with that. I will try to put my best self forward but that does not mean I will not make mistakes.
It is okay to feel weak. I know that sounds wrong but it truly is okay. Through our weakness, lies our strength. We are stronger than we see and the strength hides behind the self doubt and the weakness waiting for you to allow it to break free.
Trust in yourself and use that weakness within you to grow and change. Build yourself up through your weakness and remember that you are strong and are more than you can see.
Your children won't remember the moments when you are feeling weak but they will remember your strength and love.
