I’m a little late this week with “What I’ve Learned,” but I needed a little more time and some quiet to sit back and really process. I’m not sure I learned so much this week, as I did peel away and discover parts of me that I try and hide. While I won’t be sharing those things here, I can share what I do know.
It doesn’t matter how invisible you feel or try to make yourself, there will be people who truly care that notice.
I’m thankful I have those people in my life. You see, I’ve been trying harder and harder to disappear. It’s much easier when you feel like your invisible. So I go deeper and deeper into myself and get quieter and quieter. I’m not sure if it is hiding, or an act of self-preservation. More of the former, much less of the latter.
But that’s neither here nor there. What really matters is that while I’ve been burrowed deep, someone has noticed and that has made a world of difference in my life. And it’s a reminder to go forth and let people know they matter and you notice their absence. It will touch a part of their soul.
