The last few weeks I've been pondering something and I think I've finally figured it out. I need to let people know my limitations. I realize for many of you this might seem silly because obviously if you can't do something then you can't do something, but for me it's not that easy. I don't like to tell people I can't do something, on any level, whether it be physical, mental, emotion, financial, or spiritual and because of this problem I often make myself stressed and unhappy.
You might ask me why I do this and I've come up with several reasons;
1. I'm too prideful.
2. I really want to be able to help others when they ask.
3. I don't want people to think I'm weak or not worthwhile.
and the last and probably the most truthful reason,
4. I'm an idiot.
I have got to stop pretending I can do everything everyone wants me to. I need to start being honest with myself and realize that sometimes I've not going to always have the energy. I'm not going to always have the strength. I'm not always going to have the money. I'm not always going to have the emotionally or spiritual stability. These reason don't make me weak, they make me human and I need to be okay with that. Rome was not built in a day and it certainly wasn't build by one person.
So if for some reason you ask me to do something and I tell you I can't please know it's most likely not because I don't want to. It's probably because I have realized and am honoring that I reached my limitation of some level.
Now that I've gotten that out of the way here is your Friday Funny! I guess I'm not the only one reaching beyond my limitations.
Have a great weekend!
