It’s Okay To Say…

Posted on 25. Jul, 2012 by in Lead From Within, Leadership Development, Personal Development


 
It’s okay to say …
 
I messed up
 
I am drowning
 
I feel ashamed
 
I feel guilty
 
I am confused
 
I am scared
 
I am mad
 
I need you
 
I am frustrated
 
I wish I knew
 
I want to be loved
 
I am overwhelmed
 
I miss you
 
I do not feel confident
 
I wish I understood
 
I have no clue
 
I have made mistakes
 
I know its my fault
 
I could use your help
 
I am having a bad day
 
This message is for all of us who are human: leading organization, running companies, parenting children, supporting others.
 
We need these moments, hours, days when we can voice our feelings and say, It’s okay.
 
Saying it’s okay-is allowing ourselves to be the human.
 
Being human is having a deep understanding that at times we feel hopeless and helpless.
 
Give yourself permission to feel these feelings but don’t stay stuck.
 
Say them….feel them…. and then move through them.
 
As we experience our darkness we understand we are human beings not human doings.
 
Lead From Within: Every life cannot be without measure of darkness. We must balance our dark and light and give it patience and presence of mind. Every darkness can lead us to a better understanding of ourselves.

    Lolly this really resonated. It’s hard to inspire when you are in deep shadow.

    Perfect dose of compassion to go along with accountability. Especially for those with harsh inner critics. (I know absolutely nothing about that…;-)

    Thanks for all of your many great posts, Lolly.
