Meant to Fly

Do you ever feel like a giant weight on other people's lives? If so, I can DEEPLY relate. I believe that struggling from this insecurity always starts from a source. I've had epilepsy practically my whole life, but I never felt like a burden until the past few years. Therefore, think back to that source, to that incident, or to that person that made you feel insignificant. Is it worth giving in to what people say and throwing away your full potential? I'm just going to answer for you and say NO. Although, this is much easier said than done. So, how can we overcome the burdens we feel?

Well for starters, Psalm 55:22 tells us to cast all our burdens on the Lord because He cares for us. He will keep the righteous grounded and not shaken by the negative thoughts that encompass us. With that being said, let's cut ourselves some slack. We weren't meant to carry all the weight on our shoulders. Give your burdens to God because He loves you and wants to help. Let Him give you the mental strength you need to get through each day.

Also, surround yourself with people that see your full potential. I cannot stress this enough. There was a time in my life that I felt so horrible about myself. I felt like my epilepsy was just ruining all of my relationships. When I thought back to why I felt this way, I realized it was because of how I was being treated by others. When the ones you care about and love make you feel less important because of a condition that you can't control, you tend to believe them. I viewed myself as a burden because they viewed me as a burden. It is hard to leave those friendships, but God will take away what is not good for your soul. All you have to do is trust that He has bigger plans out there for you. Although, of course, those words said by previous relationships scarred. Sometimes, they will ring in my head on repeat, but luckily I am now surrounded with such positive people that constantly show me support and love. 

With all this being said, in the picture to the right I am wearing a "Meant to Fly" flowy crop top by Find and Seek Design because it represents everything my blog is centered around: living the most meaningful life possible. This design specifically symbolizes, "Why float when you were meant to fly." When I first saw this design, I was so easily able to relate. Why should I continue to sink into this mindset that I am worthless, when I could rise above it all and use my epilepsy for something good.....maybe a blog? ;) On top of that, a portion of proceeds from the sales of this will support the Chelsea Hutchison Foundation. This foundation serves individuals, families, and communities affected with epilepsy by spreading and raising awareness for the serious condition known as SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy).
