Stop! You Are A Hero and This One’s For You

I’ve been reading through a lot of blogs, and you know what I’m noticing?

There are a lot of hurting, struggling, fighting people.

Hurting from deep losses.

Struggling through overwhelming emotions and tough circumstances.

Fighting to stay afloat. Fighting to keep the inner peace.

You guys, you are not alone. You’re not forgotten. No matter how much the world goes on as if nothing is wrong. No matter how much you feel that no one understands.

You are not just a statistic.

You are not somehow inadequate.

You are not beyond hope.

You know what you are? You’re a hero.

  • To the mother struggling to keep her sanity as she meets the needs of her family – you’re a hero.
  • To the single father watching hair tutorials late at night when your little girl is in bed – you’re a hero.
  • To the one who lays awake at night praying for a miracle – you’re a hero.
  • To the parents fighting to smile for your children while grieving the one you lost – you’re a hero.
  • To the one who battles constant pain and struggles to live a full life – you’re a hero.
  • To you who cries yourself to sleep every night because the inner turmoil just won’t go away – you’re a hero.

Google defines hero as:

a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.

So, yes. You’re a hero. You’re a hero to your family. You’re a hero to those looking up to you. You’re a hero to those you will touch with your story.

And you’re a hero to yourself.

Because sometimes it takes courage just to smile. It takes courage to wake up in the morning. It takes courage to face another day.

It takes courage to keep fighting.

So whatever it is you’re facing – you are not alone. You are not hopeless.

You are a fighter. You are courageous. YOU ARE A HERO.

  1. Thanks for your thoughts!.. your blog reminds me of a poem I found on the internet a few years back;
    “Portrait of a Friend”

    I can’t give solutions to all of life’s problems, doubts,
    or fears. But I can listen to you, and together we will
    search for answers.

    I can’t change your past with all it’s heartache and pain,
    nor the future with its untold stories.
    But I can be there now when you need me to care.

    I can’t keep your feet from stumbling.
    I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.

    Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine;
    Yet I can share in your laughter.

    Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge;
    I can only support you, encourage you,
    and help you when you ask.

    I can’t prevent you from falling away from friendship,
    from your values, from me.
    I can only think of you, talk to you and wait for you.

    I can’t give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
    But I can give you the room to change, room to grow,
    room to be yourself.

    I can’t keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
    But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces
    and put them back in place.

    I can’t tell you who you are or who you will be
    I can only love you and be your friend

  2. You don’t even know how much I needed to read this today. The past couple of days have been full of turmoil at my job, to the point where last night I laid awake and cried. Sometimes you feel like you have given your all, to the point where you have nothing left to give. Thank you for the hope and encouragement!!!
