Not every smile is a smile.
A smile can hold pain within.
As I go through 100 million emotions on a daily lately, I allow myself to go through them.
I used to hide my tears with a smile, pretending I am okay.
Now if I am not okay, I tend to retrieve to allow myself express all emotions safely.
I am thankful to go through this as it's teaching me so much.
The wounds are still fresh and it still hurts but I see glimpses of a brand new me.
That's all I need right now.
Taking it one day at a time, one breath at a time.
I am loved and supported at all times.
