You are - or you're not. You do - or you don't.
We long for acceptance - to belong - to be part.
We long to be embraced for ourselves... in spite of ourselves.
It is the true thing everyone longs for. The one thing everyone craves.
To walk in a room and to be greeted by everyone with hugs and smiles.
And, in that small passing moment, you truly know you're loved, needed, and accepted... :)
~ Rena Harmon
There may come a time when, try as you might, you realize that there are times and places when and where you won't be accepted. The pain of the reality can bite, can hit, can land and grow from a tiny seed to a huge and strong root of bitterness and discouragement.
Don't let it. Smile. Be willing to get up, smile one last time, hold you head up...
and walk away.
At some point you will realize that you have done too much for someone and that
the only next possible step to do is to stop.
Leave them alone. Walk away. It’s not like you’re giving up, and it’s not like you shouldn’t try.
It’s just that you have to draw the line of determination from desperation.
What is truly yours would eventually be yours, and what is not, no matter how hard you try,
will never be.
