Yesterday, I had to remove all the equipment, tools and hose from the first truck I rode on at my career department. It made me think…
How often have you felt empty on the inside? Felt drained, lacking, or even useless?
Fact is, this truck is still in great condition. Engine runs like a champ, transmission is fantastic, and it pumps like a dream. All the lights work, generator powers anything and the truck is mechanically in top shape.
This is much like those of us suffering from PTSD and other behavior health disorders. Just because we feel empty on the inside, doesn’t mean we aren’t useful or important. We have scars, blemishes, or other trauma.
Truth is, this truck is still useful and will be appreciated by its service and potential.
Be proud of the memories, don’t get hung up on the bad, but focus on the positive and possibilities of your life.
You are loved, and you are not alone. Know your worth!
