You can count on me like 1, 2, 3
I'll be there
And I know when I need it
I can count on you like 4, 3, 2
You'll be there ...
I'll sing a song beside you
And if you ever forget how much you really mean to me
Every day I will remind you
~ Bruno Mars ~ Count On Me ~
You know those moments where you feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders ... and there seems to be nobody willing to lend a helping hand. That’s when you must realize that you have to keep going and you can only count on yourself.
Because in the end, your strength and endurance is what will carry you forward, with or without anyone by your side. And when you are confident enough to keep moving forward by yourself when the going gets tough, you’ll also develop the ability to help others realize they can do the same.
making YOU better doesn’t always mean
that others around you will turn into their better ...
When you start to take responsibility for your life and the things in it, you can heal what you confront. It is difficult and it isn’t fun, but it requires doing a bit of self-care. Be ready as you will feel the burden of weighing a hard decision and accepting the consequences, especially if they are not favourable to you. There will be no external praise and no reward. But you gain a quiet confidence as you take control of you. You become observant and open to new experiences. You develop goals that are set for yourself, by yourself.
Balancing self -reliance is important. We are not islands and we feed off each others energy. Yet this is about counting on no one else besides yourself. You are enough and you are complete. You are worthy and what you do matters.
Reliance on one's own
capabilities, judgment, or resources; independence ...
Self -reliant people are not arrogant or vain, nor do they believe that “everyone is cruel!”. Self-reliant are those who see the world, good and bad, and consciously choose to be strong for themselves and others. Self-reliant accept the world, as it is, and all of its complications ... because it is this that allows us to see that there are infinite ways to live and there is not requirement to conform to one of them.
