Self Love Commitment Week 3: Can You Break A Pencil?

It’s easy to break a pencil in half: take the pencil by each end, exert a little effort, and snap! The pencil easily splits in two.

But it’s a lot harder to break a bundle of twenty pencils in half. You take the bundle in both of your hands, exert a lot of effort, yet the bundle remains intact.
Something as small as a pencil becomes impossible to break when it’s supported by its pencil friends. In this example, we find a powerful lesson: weak things become strong when given proper support.

Humans are the same. We live in communities because we need others to survive and thrive. Emotionally, we rely on the people around us for love, strength, support, and the fulfillment of other needs.

Sometimes we struggle and doubt ourselves. That’s when it’s helpful rely on the people to strengthen us and give us the courage we need to continue.
Learning to rely on each other, rather than suffer in silence, is one of the great lessons of life. You might find it’s more fun to do this 8-week commitment in the Facebook community than at home alone. If you aren’t already a member, join us now: 

This week’s commitment is to RELY on someone, to lean on a friend or loved one by sharing the goals you created yesterday. Talk to them about your goals, the stumbling blocks you’ve uncovered, and what solutions you have planned for when your stumbling blocks threaten your progress.

Just remember a good friend is like a good bra: they are always there to support you and they will lift you when you are down!
