I thought I was strong, I’m not.

I have my family to protect me.

I thought I could do it alone, I can’t.

I’ve learned to reach out and ask for help. 

I thought, I was clever, but as that lady in Game of Thrones says, I know nothing.

I want to always be learning, and to never consider I know it all.

I thought I was healthy. My mind and body are in poor shape.

I drive myself too hard. 

I thought I’d be a good Dad, but I spend too much time away from my kids.

I’m trying to give them what I never had. 

I thought I’d be there for them, but I’m always working.

I’m blessed, I love my job. 

I thought I was patient, but I’m short, and snappy.

I need to get more sleep!

I thought I was kind and generous, but I’m afraid for myself.

I must overcome. 

I thought it would be easy, but life is hard.

I have to be kind to myself. 

I thought I’d have won by now, but I can’t see when the battle will be over.

I must remember it’s about ‘the taking part’. 

I thought I was brave, but I’m scared, a lot of the time.

I finally have learned, I can’t do this without the people I love, and who love me back.
