In life one can only truly depend on oneself. It doesn’t matter how much you go out of your way to help others, or for that matter how much others try to be there for you. When all is said and done, in this life we walk alone.
Although somewhat of a sobering realization, it is also very freeing as well. For once you realize this very valuable lesson then you are no longer bound by the shackles that bind you as you sit around waiting for others to do what only you can.
From time to time it is okay to let your guard down. Never fear like a bolt of lightening from above realization will hit snapping you back to reality once more .
For a brief moment you may feel sad, even annoyed but you will quickly realize that this is merely a fact of life, a lesson that you will keep on repeating over and over until it eventually sinks in and you are no longer under any false illusions.
Unfortunately for me this message has yet to sink in so I keep learning the lesson over and over, they say it takes at least 30 or so times for something to become habit, guess I’m not there yet.
