Maybe It’s Time #MondayMusings

Maybe it’s time
She thought to herself
That she let love in
And allowed herself
To be cared for
And let
Someone else take the lead.

Maybe it’s time
She realized
That she let others know
What she needed
Instead of expecting
Them to guess her needs
Or always being the one to serve.

Maybe it’s time
To let them see
Her hurts and needs
And not cover her vulnerabilities
In a cloak of strength and independence.

Maybe it’s time
To let go of carrying the burden
Of guilt and shame
And allow love
To light up those dark caverns of her soul.
Maybe It's Time

And so she opened herself
To the nurturing love
That was really all around
If she had only realized earlier.
She allowed herself to
Be looked after
To be treated like a princess.

Slowly, the loving care
Those attending angels
So lavished on her
Began to bear its fruit
She began to heal
And realize her own worth.

Maybe it’s time
She thought to herself
To make loving care
Become a part of her routine
To allow others to be
All she tries to be to them.

Allow others to give you loving care. Receive without guilt or apologies.
– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D.

    Yes Corinne . We should accept the love of others and not feel prickly or embarrassed to admit that we need them in our lives

    Excellent post, Corinne. I felt this feeling when I allowed to be taken care of during my eye surgery. And the love I felt during that time iwas really true and wonderful. i could feel your words.

    Just beautiful, Corinne! Loved how you touched upon vulnerability in this post. Human beings are wired to be social. Looking forward to your next! 🙂

    “And not cover her vulnerabilities
    In a cloak of strength and independence.”

    Absolutely loved these lines.

    Beautiful post, Corinne. I can tell you I’ve had these thoughts at times and realised that time alone probably will show us how and when we are ready to recieve from others and how time will come to let go of that control over ourselves that we’ve grown so used to. Loved these lines— so true and yet it takes a lot of learning to be able to do this – “Allow others to give you loving care. Receive without guilt or apologies.”

    Very beautifully penned Corinne ; letting yourself be loved and taken care of when you have been in control all the time and done if for the others can be scary. I would be afraid to let go of the control as what if it doesnt work out the way I am thinking it would. Allowing others to be all is a very scary proposition, esp if the others are always helpless and dependant on her!
    Lots of food for thought here.

    Being open to receiving love make us feel very vulnerable, but it’s a chance we need to take!

    Such a beautiful one, Corinne. I loved when you said, may be it’s time to tell others what she needs and not what is expected. Over the last few months, most women I am talking to tell me that they have forgotten what they need in the race of fulfilling expectations from others. I have been feeling how can women change this for themselves. Loved the poem!

    Sometimes we need to take a chance with love. I just hope it turns out to be with the right person.
    Beautiful words.

    Allowing “others to be all she tries to be to them” is such wisdom, particularly for parenting. At times we despair over our kids because they seem clueless and selfish . . . but we must ask ourselves whether we have given them the opportunity to be otherwise.
