i wrote a song… in my mind

we all have problems

with one comment

…i’m just the first to admit it.

mr. kanye west has a point.  we do all have problems.  and it’s when we are in a position to admit our problems that we can start to face them and work on them.

i used to think that i was the only one in the world with deep, debilitating problems (can you imagine that?).  everyone else seemed so well put together.  they had all the answers, they’re really good at giving advice, being the authority figure, the leader.  but i realized that everyone has problems.  even them.  deep down, people got some problems.  even the best of us.

i think it’s a hard thing to deal with when you realize that the higher ups have as many scars as you do.  they are, after all, human too.  for me, i just thought that when you’re in a position of authority, you’ve somehow managed to fix all those problems before you got there.  how naive of me to think that.

i guess what i’m struggling to realize is how grace fits in to all this.  yes i know that all of us do not deserve grace but need it at the same time.  but i’m wrestling with how i should be acting or interacting with these people.  scarred people.  knowing that i’m scarred too.

  1. I’m glad you shared this and it’s so true. I guess we tend to elevate those we respect, admire, etc. and grant them or assume immunity to any sort of problem. Then when we do find out they have problems we become disenchanted. I’m also glad you were able to mention Grace, because it plays such a huge role. It is the Great Equalizer. No one gets more grace than the other–it’s already overflowing. It’s beautiful.
