Being strong doesn’t mean hiding your pain. It doesn’t mean forgoing help when you’re struggling. It doesn’t mean refusing to show sadness and vulnerability. And it doesn’t mean carrying the burdens of life all by yourself. Anything that prevents your healing and stifles your growth does not correspond with strength. Being strong means refusing to tolerate people and things that wound your soul. It means practicing self care when you’re hurting. It means honoring your feelings by actually allowing yourself to feel and express them.

HOW BROKEN

How broken is the heart that wails the loss of a beloved
The unending saga of devotion
is now a fragmentary account
The tranquilizing memories
are now painful reminders
The lost sense of touch
is a testimony to the reality

How broken is the heart that wails the loss of a beloved
Those perky moments
are the ones now being longed for
Those momentous conversations
are the ones that are in vain
The only gratifying feelings
are now disposed towards neglect

How broken is the heart that wails the loss of a beloved
