I’m Enough and Nothing At All

My whole life I wanted to be enough, for someone to behold me, smile, and say, “You are just the person I’ve been looking for!” Smart enough, funny enough, good enough…

Take it all away. Cognitive abilities have declined. Isolation is the rule. Even speaking is often interrupted by tears.

Family and close friends still love me. They want me to continue living. It seems I find I am enough when I offer nothing at all, requiring only that I breathe. Enough certainly doesn’t feel like I thought it would.

Writing is one of my passions. Most blog entries are relatively short articles regarding a wide variety of topics. I'm a middle-aged wife and mother of two adult sons. I've been a teacher, counselor, medical transcriptionist, student teacher supervisor, substitute teacher and retail clerk. Staying home now due to fibromyalgia. Seeking purpose.

  1. I am so sorry you are struggling. You’re right—you are enough. You don’t have to do anything to prove yourself to those who love you. You don’t have to earn love by what you do. YOU yourself are enough because you are lovable and loved. 💙
