Too Strong For Too Long

Healing takes time, healing requires courage and sometimes healing demands a different version of us to attain it. I always ask people to be kind to everyone, because you never know who’s next to you and why they act or behave as they do. I am praying for everyone to heal and learn how to love without reason. We are all fighting different battles, and you might feel like you’re alone, or no one understands – which might be partially true because no one really goes through what you are but you. Life can get very difficult at times, but I pray that you find the courage to go through it because the world is a cruel place and we all need some love.

I believe it is time to stop masking emotions and living in facades of bliss behind the curtains of social media while in real life mental degradation, self-hate, racism, sexism and every other bad –ism take the trophy. These past few weeks, I have been thinking a whole lot about peace and happiness. It is okay to not be okay, it is okay to cry out your pain and remember it is just a thought. It is okay to be weak by caring for others, it is okay to be humane. When you’ve been too strong for too long, take a break to breathe. It’s your life, live it, love it.

When all we knew was fun, and life suddenly speeds up from 0-1000 real quick. Adulting hits us with lots of decisions to make, places to be and people to please. Sometimes we are caught up in the storm of wanting to live life so hard that we opt to be left out. It’s such a crazy feeling, and more often than not it is difficult to remember who or what we are and why exactly we’re here. It is okay to get lost, but the sooner you find your sparkle the better. Let go of all the negativity, don’t let it get to your head, don’t forget who you are.

Don’t be too strong to reach out for help, don’t be afraid to be vulnerable for a second and let someone in. You are not defined by your scars or losses and whatever you do, never give up. Lately, I have been envying people who just laugh for no reason, people who have such a peaceful aura and people who understand pain but go through it smiling. I envy people who live in a little cabin in the woods and spend their days singing and just being happy without a concern in the world. Happiness is such a rare thing, almost as rare as true love. I pray that everyone heals (including myself), of all the pain and hurt that we may have been accustomed to. I hope that love wins. Life is so damn complicated, but guess what, we’re all in this together! Have a loving healing week! You’re doing amazing sweetie!
