I am Vulnerable.


I am vulnerable.

I worry about what people think.

I let them control me.

I make plans that I don’t follow through.

I have dreams that don’t come true.

I put everything above them.

I think they are unimportant.

I think I that they are too big.

I think that I am too small.

I am vulnerable.

Respected Life means so much to me.It is a part of my dream.

I will explain why.

When I was growing up, I did not have much.I watched my parents be belittled,bashed, and betrayed.

I watched them struggle. I watched them cry. I watched them smile.

They taught me how to live. They taught me how to fight. They taught me how to inspire.

My family has been without. We still are without, but we are happy. We won’t stop fighting. We won’t stop smiling.

My parents always tell me to strive for the best. They want me to pass every test.

I am vulnerable.

I don’t want my family to struggle. I don’t want them to cry.I want them to have the world. I throw myself into my studies.  I forget about everything else. I am only focused on getting better. I forget about fun. I forget about  friends. I forget about dreams.

I am vunerable.

I just want to help. I want to help more than my family. I want to help more than the poor. I want to help more than myself.I want to help the teen who doesn’t know how to fix her hair. I want to help the single dad or mom who is having trouble paying the bills. I want to help the  diabetic  on dialysis. I want to help anyone who wants to make difference.

I know that I don’t have the popularity of a celebrity. My blog is not a “top” blog, but I believe that it can help others.  I believe that everybody is somebody. If I can make  one person smile, then I have succeeded.

Well, what if I don’t succeed?  That is the question that I often ask myself. This is why I run away. This is why I’m inconsistent.

This is why I am vulnerable.

This is why I need to change.

This is why I will change.

This is why I am strong.

    This post was exactly what I needed to read at this moment in my life. I agree with you on every line! Thanks for helping me to put things in perspective and also reminding me that I’m not the only one that feels this way. 🙂

    Howdy –

    Allowing yourself to recognize these feelings in yourself is a large part of ride forward in life. Keep at at – it’s a bumpy ride at times – never give up on yourself !

  3. You have a great blog. I get a LOT out of reading it. Your articles, your honesty, your quotes. Love it. Thanks for posting!

    This was such a heartfelt post. You clearly have a talent for writing. Even though you feel that you can’t help others as much as you’d like to is a big thing. The fact that you actualy care and notice the struggles of those around you is important. it’ll shape your actions & interactions with others.

    Also there is no kindness too small. Sometimes the simplest things have the greatest impact.

    Keep your chin up,

  6. I really liked what Em wrote:

    “Also there is no kindness too small. Sometimes the simplest things have the greatest impact.”

    I have to remember that. It’s certainly been that way for me in my life. The angels that saved me, at the most inopportune times, with the smallest of things… I bless those people and those memories every day, and I try to do the same. Thanks for the reminder.
