It’s ok to feel
One thing I’ve learned on my healing journey is that running from the way you feel won’t help, trying to cover up the way you feel won’t help, trying to ignore the way you feel will not help.
When I talk about healing I’m not talking about from relationships, I’m talking about healing from life shit. So much happens throughout life and sometimes it changes certain parts of us.
You really have to allow yourself to feel all of that shit. The good, the bad, and the ugly. I said the other day on one of my stories that we are real people with real feelings. We are all fighting silent battles so it’s important that we all know it’s ok to not be ok all of the time.
If you have to cry, do that.
If you have to scream, do that.
If you have to sing loud in while in your car on your way to your destination, do that.
Find ways to release.
Some days will be better than others. Some days it won’t feel like you’re making any progress at all. One minute you may burst out into laughter and the next minute it may be tears and that’s cool. It does not mean you’re weak. It means you’re getting better day by day.
To our men, stop holding everything in. It’s not going to make you less of a man. We know y’all were raised on some “never cry, never show emotion” shit. Let’s get rid of that mindset. Y’all are human and no one deserves to go through life keeping everything in. It’s not healthy. Talk to someone. We got y’all.
To our women, it’s ok not to be ok all of the time. It’s ok not to be strong all the time. It’s ok not to be in the best mood all of the time. It’s ok to take a BREAK. Stop judging a woman for needing a break. She’s human. We all get tired.
Empathy is the word I’ll leave y’all with.
We all out here healing from different things.
That’s why having empathy is important.
Love each other.
