"Knowledge is proud that he has learn'd so much: wisdom is humble that he knows no more."
~ William Cowper ~
Admitting that I have limitations is difficult to do. I want to be tireless, invincible, and always-up. And I'm good at pretending and pushing beyond reason. I've been doing that for years. But it always catches up with me eventually and makes me unwell.
Confessing my needs, my hurt feelings, my fears, and my weakness actually strengthens me. It is imagining that I have some kind of magical immunity that reveals how paper thin and fragile I can be.
I willingly and graciously accept my limitations.
