It always seems that other people have it together. Enough money; the right clothes, the correct attitude, proper education and so on. I have found however that no-one has it all together all the time. Some have it more together than others, but even they will have times when everything falls apart.
The most well made plans fall asunder. I just heard for example about a woman who had a top-notch job, smart as a whip, fantastic salary, good looks, the lot. She’s married and in love and has it altogether except when it all fell apart. She couldn’t stand the strain of holding her perfect life together. She hit rock bottom and had to have serious therapy and medication to help pull her out of the pit.
My friend, we all lose it at times. The important thing is not to keep it all together, but to allow ourselves the freedom of letting it fall apart; my friend, today stop holding on to what is not true for you.
Let yourself have the freedom just for today to be who you really are. Tired of picking up after everyone? Let them do it. Sick to death of smiling when you want to frown? Frown. Making yourself ill doing everyone else’s job? Stop doing it. Let others pick up the slack. Keeping it together means using your resources. Talk to your family, your co-workers, your boss. If you were to die tomorrow, someone else would pick up the slack. So let someone else do that today. Live your life with joy and stop being the glue for everyone else.
