“It’s not about you.” We hear that so often. And it’s true. We shouldn’t be “me” focused, in this life. Those who give to others, love on others, and focus on bettering other people’s lives and making a lasting impact for good… they are happier.
But that doesn’t mean we don’t need anything. It doesn’t mean we are content to be ignored.
For everyone needs love. And everyone needs to feel valued.
Everyone craves touch. An encouraging word. Someone to notice them.
Some of us may not need it as much as others; but we all need it.
We need each other.
So, although it’s important to not get caught up in our own crisis, problems, and our own little world – it’s also important to have a support system, people we can talk to, and those who will invest in us.
No one should go through life all alone.
We can thrive on giving and loving; but an empty well still needs to get filled up from time to time. And we can empty ourselves into others so much, that we don’t notice when we start feeling dry, until we’re already there. And as good as we can be at listening to positive speeches, reading motivating words, or relaxing… we still need others to recharge us and invest into our lives. We need to know that we matter!
So, if you are a giver – good for you. I bet you have a content heart and life. But allow others to give to YOU once in awhile. If only for your soul.
We all need to feel loved in addition to loving on others. Let yourself be loved. Let yourself be encouraged. Make changes in your life, if needed, to make sure that you get that emotional connection that your heart craves from time to time.
You may be surprised. Sometimes we think everyone already has all the friends they need in their lives. But, most people always have room in their lives to love and be loved on by a new friend. Invite them in. Open your heart.
And get that well filled up.
It’s NOT all about you. But sometimes, it’s a little bit about you.
