Maybe the silver lining and beauty in heartbreak is the entire experience of living through an emotion so intense that you can feel it in every ounce of your entire physical and mental being.
It’s been a lonely and challenging year, to say the least, but I’ve still found a bit of grounding in what feels like the chaos of life. I’ve still returned home.
I still love you, I still wonder what made you give up, and I still resent fear for digging its claws in you and us.
Continually shaping and shedding unwanted layers of self and each time honing more into me – this wanderlust soul.
Letting go of us, of you, will make space for what I’m now ready to receive.
Although I don’t think of myself as a person who is staring at their phone all the time, getting off social media showed me that I am that kind of person.
Be uncomfortable, grow, reflect, celebrate and ride the waves, both ebbs and flows of life, with me and countless others on similar journeys.
