This is not what I had intended to write. Not at all.
But, I keep getting notice on my stats (bloggy thing) of people finding my blog using the search term, “Am I invisible”. And my friends, every stinking time I read that, my heart just breaks a bit. So, here goes.
No. You are not invisible. You might feel like that from time to time, or maybe you’re feeling it a lot. But trust me. You are not.
Because I see you. I noticed you. Right away. I know you are here. And believe or not, I care that you are here.
You may not believe this, but someone loves you. Likely a few people. Do you think for one second that your presence isn’t noticed by them? Or your absence? I’ll bet in your absence, they miss you. You just don’t notice.
Maybe the world feels against you, no one hears you calling out in your pain. Trust me. That’s a lie. Your brain is very good at lying to you when you are in pain. Don’t believe it.
Tell yourself that everyday. Yell it if you have to.
We, all people, are honoured to have you here. We don’t want you anywhere else.
I know sometimes it’s just so hard to get up in the morning and you wonder to yourself ,”Why, why, why do I feel so alone?”
I’ve been there. Mama duck has had her moments, to be sure.
Even the simple matter of reaching out to your computer renders you visible. If you’ve got no one else to talk to, talk there. Look until you find it. You will.
I see you. And you can do it, Honey.
Hold fast. Hold fast.
This life is beautiful, if you let it be. You can do it, Honey.
This life is easy. And you are not invisible.
If you need me, you know where I am.
I see you.
