Being alive in solitude is where we learn how to love, how to breathe, how to desire, and how to evolve.
“They say shame controls every aspect of human behavior. It’s about who we believe we are. But in the end, you cant hide and the body doesn’t lie. The truth is right for the world to see. Our shame can choke us, kill us. It can rot us from the inside, if we decide to let it.” – Meredith Grey
This variable we know as change cannot be feared, because it is the thing that takes us to freedom. It takes us to the place where blossoms bloom out of our own souls dark places.
Thank you to all of the parents who do it alone, who teach humanity each day more about love. Thank you for being the people in our worlds who display vulnerability and make it beautiful. Thank you to all of the single mothers and fathers who show up for their bad days, representing humility and human nature.
When we practice loving someone who isn’t scared of love, they don’t let us run. They don’t let us completely shut down. They don’t let us function out of fear. They stay.
We’ve all experienced what it’s like to fall in love. Maybe not with a person, maybe we are just hopelessly open to any object that will attempt to fill us up.
We as humans are extremely powerful but some things in this world are meant to show us how little and delicate we truly are.
