Inspired & Heavy

I’ve been thinking . . .

The word ‘depend’ is heavy. You know. Like the times when someone says, “I depend on you.” It can be a burden to know someone is relying on you to be there, to show up, to be supportive, and to come alongside to help. Heavy!

The word ‘depend’ is inspiring. You know. Like the times when someone says, “I depend on you.” When others see you as reliable, trusted, valued, and capable it’s motivating and encouraging. Inspiring!

If we look up depend in the dictionary, it won’t tell us how to feel. But depend has feelings.

In that tiny 6-letter word is a heaviness that implies there will be failure if we aren’t there. But in that same word is confidence that inspires us to show up.

The truth is we are all called upon to be the one who shows up to help, to support, to encourage, to inspire. Be dependable.

Someone depends on you.

You depend on someone.

Anyway … that’s what I was thinking.

    • Thank you, Arlene. It’s a word that can go both ways, that’s for sure. When I was 8 years old I wanted to hear that someone depended on me. At age 38 I think I was ready not to be depended upon for awhile. I appreciate you for reading and taking time to interact with me.
