We can’t sweep our sad moments under the rug just to pretend that they don’t exist and then heap happy platitudes on top of them.
To heal we must bring them to light. Air them out. Cry. Shout. Do what you need to do. But don’t swallow them.
That’s no way to fix what’s broken. Hiding them away is like putting a plaster on a festering wound. It’s not being courageous to bottle it all up, rather it takes courage to seek resolution.
If you are hurting in any way, seek for a reliable, supportive person to talk to, if you have no one to talk to, free write it all out even if it’s anonymously and send it out there.
