I recently said to someone that I don't want to live a life of lowered expectations. Expecting that people can't be what you need them to be. I don't want to expect less of people in both friendships and romantic relationships.
I must admit that I am getting tired though...
Vest (1st pic): Old Navy
Boys plaid shirt: GapKids (thrifted)
Pearls: Forever 21
Boots: Juicy Couture
I am tired of trying to give my best to everyone and getting less in return. Of feeling that people who don't deserve it, who constantly wreak havoc; win. My prayer is to be a blessing to others, to always give my best but it's getting harder and harder to pray that prayer when people continue to disappoint you.
I was hoping to regroup and keep it trucking like I normally do but I'm am very afraid that the fight is leaving me. I recently completed a seven day fast hoping that would help but now that it's over I still feel drained.
I know that this too shall pass, I just haven't found the resilience that's always been there before....
Coincidentally I just found this article on How to Stay Positive in Challenging Times, I'm going to try the tips provided.
What do you do to stay positive? To regain your resilience?
