On Personal Limits as Strength


This week, the stress of a major work event and having to juggle two different jobs definitely affected me profoundly. I found myself saying, “I can’t do this anymore!”

For someone who is an overachiever, this was a very difficult thing to admit. Confronting my limits has, in my own history, meant failure and defeat.

And yet I found that acknowledging my personal limits was an act of power. For it is truly accepting my boundaries that I am able to begin to have a baseline from which to move and grow.

How ironic that recognizing our limits does not mean failure but rather the possibility of transformation.
