I used to think it was my responsibility to carry everyone and make sure everyone is pleased and content with how I am behaving in their standards.
And everyday felt so HEAVY, because I am constantly asking myself:
"Am I too loud?"
"Do my coworkers think I'm smart and capable?"
"Do my friends find me beautiful and funny?"
"Am I making enough to help pay for my parents' expenses?"
While we are called to encourage, love, and serve people, I realized we can still care deeply about others AND still have clear and firm boundaries.
So, if today was heavy,
put it down and
give it to God.
