The pressure, the unknown, the survival skills....
everything that has to do with catching up with ourselves and making sure we have it all together...
is what makes us worried and not understand why....
we have the "Weight of the World" on our shoulders.
The pressure's on when it comes to making ourselves look like we have our home lives, our work schedules, our financial matters, and our relationships in tip top shape. We forget that ALL of what I just mentioned takes not only effort, it takes a lot of perseverance in keeping it together and keeping our minds sane enough so at night we can fall asleep.
Now here's the deal though, WE make our lives this way. It's what we call the American Dream. The higher up you wish to go in LIFE the more you have to pay in SACRIFICE.
Nothing will ever come easy, and if it does,
it won't last, that we can be sure of.
The "Weight of the World" can also contain who we desire to have around us while we reach up for toward the infinite skies. So many people give us that drive while others simply slow us down, wanting us to continue down their own personal path due to a lack of security.
I speak a lot about insecurities because they're the unfortunate second nature in our being. We don't want to feel alone, we want to make sure we have company along side us so we can at least share at one point in time what misery we might be going through.
In all sense of the term, "Misery loves Company", and that too can add more
weight to any part of us.
"With the sweet, comes the sour" and vice versa. There's always a clear sky after the storm, there will always be winds of change and there will always be opportunities to look back and reflect on what is needed to be let go and what is needed to be reinforced.
In my own experience, every sacrifice has it's recompense, and every path has it's goal.
Forget the Uncertainty and Strive toward the Unknown.
