Moral of the photo: giving Mom flowers for Christmas when you don’t know what the hell to buy her will still bring a smile to her face. (I forgot Mother’s Day when I was 15 and I wove Ma a tiara of daisies. At age 49, she still had the photo framed in the house.)
When I was 10 yrs old, I remember asking about a condition I was having. Forty years later, I learned that they were Anxiety Attacks. My life would have be substantially better had I gotten the help I needed in those formative years. I blame no one. I was young and lacked the courage to speak out due to fear of others perceptions of me.
People who expect others to fit into a certain mold may be demonstrating their own pridefulness, fears, or weaknesses. Being true to yourself may require more strength and courage than imagined. #pride #egotism #fears #truth #truetoyourself #strength #courage #people #integrity
