How Great Is This???

Many times in our lives we look for Grand Gestures.  Some want to win the lottery, you want people to respect you, and people to like you, and you know I think when we are most liked, and when people like us the most is when we feel the weakest.  When we let our guard down.  When we take off our turtle shell, and open up our soft side.  The side that can really get hurt.  That takes courage, because really for a turtle to take off his shell, he has to TRUST his surroundings.  Of course I don't even know if a turtle can take off his shell, but you get the point. 

We all have been hurt at some point in time, and maybe we didn't even know it.  Maybe we didn't look at it, because it hurt too much.  Remember those people in the bar who didn't want to talk of sad stuff, because they didn't drink enough yet.  It seems we all have a set of eyes that work.  Every time we have been hurt, I'd imagine the natural tendency is to build up walls of defenses so that never happens again.  I guess we look at life and worry about finances, and jobs, and careers, etc... and maybe the most important stuff is what we feel inside.  The stuff that makes us ponder.  Inside of us is all different things, and it is neat to look at, and you know all of us would like to know what is inside all of you.  Kinda a quid pro quo, I show you my stuff, and you show us yours.  Believe it or not we all are filled with insecurities.  Our easiest thing to show is our self-perceived strength we have built with our walls, but the most fascinating stuff is the stuff that made you build the walls in the first place.  What made you build your walls?    I wonder if that is what we are doing.  Taking down the walls we built, because in the end it really is no defense.  Our truly only defense is trust, trust that when we become naked... so to speak... there is support, and we won't ridicule, and we will not dislike.  Kinda a strange path.  Who would have thought???  We lived a life, and built up our walls, and layered ourselves with clothes, and now we go in reverse, and take all that down.  To heal ourselves we make it so we really feel our most vulnerable, and most scared, and maybe even most insecure.  It is through our weakness where we find strength.  :)

Extras for Nancy O'Toole again, because now I understand her.  She is very thoughtful, and very strong, but she has stuff inside her she keeps to herself.  So she does need them.  xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Gina  Behind the strength/walls she built up is soooo much more she hasn't tapped into.  xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Steve, that is the best post you have written. I really love it. I think you are right. We build walls of strength to hide the real stuff. I wish I had the strength to share the real stuff but I am not there yet. Too many people could be hurt by what I have to say. I know f'em if they can't take it. I wish it were that easy.

Have a great weekend man!
