Being strong is feeling like a burden; you have moments where you realize others depend on you but they often do not check in to see if you are on firm footing; or at least that is how it feels. I am sure that if I were to let the façade of strength slip for a moment those in my circle would rush to my aid but I am not sure how to send out an S.O.S. I feel myself slipping away, into the safety behind the walls I spent years to construct for all the courage I had to wander out into life has dissipated. Maybe someday I will have the strength to stay out in the world.
“Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself.” -C.G. Jung
