Personal| When You Try To Be A Strong Woman, But You Are Only Human

I believe that when you became a mother, you felt that you were thrown into the world where you had to be strong and that you molded yourself to be strong with every possible fall you encountered.

When I posed for Christine Day Lorico (http://curlytops.deviantart.com)

It could be from that time when your child became seriously ill, the time you had to decide between a career or a time when a dent in the marriage developed. 


We as women transfer into the the supermom that everyone expects us to be, smile through all the challenges but deep inside we cry when it's dark or you have that time to be alone. 

Sometimes confiding doesn't always resolve your heartache and we often resort to praying, in the hope that we can be guided to be stronger. 

I recently have been going through a challenge that although it wasn't new, I seriously felt lost. I have been through so many challenges before and people always expect me to be able to get through. I guess, because I have always given the perception that I am strong.

My job includes motivating people, especially those that get stressed with final assessments within training, I have counseled those that have family issues, domestic issues, nanny issues and most especially self confidence issues and yet I was at a time that I had no one to motivate me. 

It takes guts to bare my soul but like just like everyone, I am only human. 

So here's a song for the women and mothers that feel that lost at this time, just tell yourself that you are only human and it's OK to feel that maybe... this time your supermom powers cannot always save the day



"Human"
by Cristina Perri
I can hold my breath
I can bite my tongue
I can stay awake for days
If that's what you want
Be your number one

I can fake a smile
I can force a laugh
I can dance and play the part
If that's what you ask
Give you all I am

I can do it
I can do it
I can do it

But I'm only human
And I bleed when I fall down
I'm only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
'Cause I'm only human

I can turn it on
Be a good machine
I can hold the weight of worlds
If that's what you need
Be your everything

I can do it
I can do it
I'll get through it

But I'm only human
And I bleed when I fall down
I'm only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
'Cause I'm only human

I'm only human
I'm only human
Just a little human

I can take so much
'Til I've had enough

'Cause I'm only human
And I bleed when I fall down
I'm only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
'Cause I'm only human
