I’m so tired of the superficiality. I’m not happy right now and I’m not going to pretend I am just for the sake of being some fake unrealistic robot-like social media example of positivity.
Being a light doesn’t mean you IGNORE your feelings. Even the painful ones are there to help you. It means you reflect and accept your emotions exactly as they are in that given moment. You feel the rawness of them. You stop the stupid distractions and allow yourself to be uncomfortable momentarily so that you may TRULY cope... Because you are not a dry erase board that just gets to pick and choose what you want to deal with, and wipe the rest away.
This page of mine is about healing and damn it, I’m not going to sit here and pretend I am some profound exception to the volatile reality of human existence. I am this resilient BECAUSE of hard times. I’m grateful for my challenges because without them, who would I be?
Bottom line: IT IS OKAY to not be okay, when things really aren’t okay. Just don’t let yourself stay there longer than necessary.
@ce_photogs thank you dear friend for capturing this vulnerable moment last June. I always wanted to post but was too afraid... until now.
