don’t pretend to be strong when you’re not. don’t pretend to be tough and resilient when you’re cracking under the pressure. don’t power through when you are anything but powerful….
with a patient calm
she rounds your jagged presumptions
and softens your hardened convictions
not to invalidate your core strength
but to draw it out
to expose you
to your self…
be your own source of strength. be wholly and powerfully you, so you don’t need to rely or depend on anyone – especially your partner, spouse, or would-be lover.
