Being Human

8:39 PM

Being a human is hard. We get tired. We get cranky. We get hangry. We PMS. And some days or seasons we are stretched to the limit and beyond with decisions and responsibilities until we feel like we might crack.

I like to think I should be able to do it all alone and that asking for help is a sign of weakness. I SHOULD be able to get my baby to sleep. I SHOULD be able to handle x situation without being anxious about it. And when I have those days in which I'm just so maddeningly imperfect and human, it seems like a baffling miracle how anyone makes it through this crazy life. 

We've been told that weak things will become strong if we turn to Heavenly Father for help, and I believe this with all of my heart, but I don't think these weak things ever necessarily become easy.  Maybe this means that we will find strength in repeatedly and for all our lives seeking Him when we face our toughest demons time after exhausting time. And maybe it means finding strength in our support systems without feeling guilt ridden about it. 

Thankfully we don't have to explain away our weaknesses. We have them. It's kind of the worst. But also the whole reason we are on the earth. So we may as well suck it up and just keep doing our best, even if that means a good cry in a dark room with your baby that won't sleep, a vent session to your sister, or a day or some off your game. 

You're doing great. Life is not for sissies. It's so beautiful and also so hard sometimes. Keep on keeping on. There's so much joy to be had in the journey of we can muddle through the hard parts.
