Vidablogg-Life’s Labyrinth

Vidablogg is about life as it happens one day at a time. About its ups and downs, its happy and sad moments, its achievements and failures, its dreams and hopes for the future, and everything in between…because life simply happen.

  1. I have read many of your posts, and I get a sense of what you’re going through. I would like for you to do two things, not for me, but for your child.
    1) Don’t look back. When you’ve done the right thing, it doesn’t matter who else feels or does not feel the same way – you know it’s true, and that is what matters. Consider that on a plane, during the pre-flight safety brief, they always say to secure the oxygen mask over your own face before anyone else’s. This is because you cannot help anyone else unless you are safe. Right?

    2) Only compare yourself to yourself. Are you better this second than a few minutes ago? Are you better this week than last week? This year than last year? That is success. Some people will be successful no matter what, and some people will be failures no matter what – but compared to each other. Real success is just being better than you were. And considering the strength, resolve and courage it took for you to leave your terrible situation, trust me…

    You ARE better than you were.

    I’m not some kind of guru. I’ve only said two things, after all. But this blogosphere, mine especially, is filled with people like you, and people like me, and people like us somehow – and they are supportive and kind. This is because they’re all like us – writing through their feelings and conditions, and sharing their stories, and finding that we all have more in common than we think. So look at people who follow you, and pay attention to the tags they use – they’re practically code words for ‘these people are like me’ – and you will find friends, and support, and love.

    • I have no words, except thank you. Thank you for your kind uplifting words. I concur with all that you’ve said and I’m grateful for sensible/nonjudgmental individuals as yourself who understand another individual’s struggle. I am trying to take care of me first, it’s new for me because i’ve always put others before me, but as you mentioned, how can i take care of others when I neglect myself? I am also trying not to compare myself and my situation to no one else’s; it’s so hard to pick the broken pieces when you’ve worked so hard to accomplish so much and then find yourself back to zero again. Once again thank you, you have no idea how much your words have helped, I am appreciative of you taking time to extend words of courage to me in such difficult times.

  2. Never lose faith…You are stronger than you think. You don’t ever have to fight the battle because it’s God’s battle, not yours. Amazingly, all you need to do is be still. Your blog is amazing. In many ways, I can understand you. Can’t wait to read more!

  3. i have just read the two posts above and I agree with you both. I am mother of 4 children and I never put myself first – part of being a Mum I guess. My husband has just died 6 weeks ago and if I dont put myself first now I dont think there willl be a me left. It is so true. No one has travelled your journey except you and so no one has the right to judge or comment on your choices. Many feel they are entitled to and will but I am trying to learn to believe and trust in me. I need to find the strength from somewhere to be able to be making decisions that are right for me and in turn my children and no they are not easy but with the support of like minded people we can gain more strength. Thank you for sharing your blog and thoughts as you are helping me. I thank you for listening and hope my listening to you will give you a tiny bit of extra strength too to fight the battles we know are ahead of us. Sophie

    • Awww Sophie I’m the one who has to thank you for sharing your story/journey with me, i concur with all you have said. I greatly appreciate your comment and knowing that my posts have touched you, is priceless and motivates to continue to share my life in the form that i do as well as continue to post encouraging-uplifting posts along the way. Thank you.
