I think I tend to have this attidue with a lot of people. I dare to say that I have a fairly high self esteem. This isn't to say that I don't get hurt, but I mostly find myself to be my own person. HOWEVER, I am completely consumed by other people's needs most of the time. Sometimes I can just rattle off 400 things I've done for other people every day. And most days that's fine. You dare tell me who to be, who died and made you king of anything?
But sometimes I need to remember that I am the king of my everything.
I am the one making the choice to serve, making the choice to love these children. Somehow that makes it all worth it.
And just for your info, Conner is not the king of Anything. :) Neither is P. Although she thinks she is. I'm still working on that.
Here's the video in case you haven't heard it before:
