note to self: i’ll be there for you, always

written june 6, 2021. Photo by Kristine Cinate on Unsplash I have always looked for myself in other people. I think the idea was that they would somehow hold the pieces of me that I felt were missing. That maybe, if I wrapped my identity up in theirs enough, we would somehow make a whole person. It's not healthy to live like this, but I did it anyway — burning through relationships and searching for something I couldn't quite name. It was never enough, not to be myself, but it was never enough to latch my identity to other people, either. I got close, several times — I thought I had reached the pinnacle of self discovery. I thought I had completed myself. But in the end, relying on other people to help build yourself is never a viable way to do things. It's only recently that I've started to become comfortable with the idea of being enough, as I am, on my own.

Another Hero (or Heroine...?)

My other hero would have to be my mom.

She has sacrificed so much for us. She has done everything in her power to stay home with us, no matter what the cost. She is beautiful, kind, and loving. I love her so much, and she is truly my example for the kind of woman I want to become. She loves unconditionally, and always has the best words of advice, no matter what's wrong. She listens to God and truly is a follower of him. She has such a way with little kids, and ministers to them like her own. She cooks the best food ever, and she's always there for me. I am so glad God gave her to me, and my dad. Thank you, Mom, for being so amazing, beautiful, and following God's own heart. I love you!
