Last night I had quite a scare. While I’d rather not go into detail about what went down I do have to say that I know how truly lucky I am to know that I have people who care about me. People who, if there was an emergency, would drop everything to be by my side and make sure everything is okay.
I’m the type of character who tends to try and stay brave at all times. I put up a front — a shield if you will — to try and be the strongest person (emotionally and mentally) that I can be. It’s a lifestyle I’ve known for a long time. That doesn’t necessarily mean there’s no room for evolution though.
The lesson I learned last night is this: A true sign of strength is knowing when it’s okay to let yourself be vulnerable. In times of trouble, it’s okay to let the shield down.1 note
