Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. Over the past several days I have been thinking about a reality — that is some times forgotten. You and I are divinely created and called to fulfil a unique role — in our world.
In my experience — for many years — I bought into the notion that my role did not matter. What I had to give seemed to have little value — because no one seemed to want what I had to give. Consequently, I found that my efforts to give — of who I was — seemed to fall short. My perception clouded my ability to see reality.
In my discouragement, I disparaged, minimized and marginalized how I saw myself and what I had to offer my world. In the process I found myself judging who I was by how I perceived my companions. Consequently, I spent many of my years discouraged, despondent and depressed — because I felt like some one “all dressed up with no where to go”.
With time and through my struggle, I began to make sense of what I had being doing to myself. I began to realize that I had been comparing my insides to other people’s outsides. Through my process, I began to realize what had kept me stuck . I discovered that I had been judging my insides by other people’s outsides.
Please read Part 2 for context. Thank you.
