That is a wonderful piece. I just wish we didn't need to keep explaining it again and again. And I wish society didn't make us feel like we have to constantly push the limits. I'm struggling tonight because someone is asking too much from me and I know I can't cope with it, but I don't know how to explain and say no. Especially when she's guilting me into it by telling me I'm the only one she can turn to and that her family are telling her to turn to me as well because I tried to help before. D:
Thank you for reminding me that I shouldn't be trying to overcome my limits. I will try to be firmer now
This touched me to the point of tears. I have a son with a disability and this is truly how I feel about his limitations. He cannot do everything -- but neither can any of us. We can help him reach his full potential, but we must be careful not to push him into places he simply can't navigate. I have my own limitations due to mental illness. I think this fact keeps me aware of that balance every day. I commend you on your eloquent words. Thank you so very much for sharing them.
