Life can be so lonely…it can be so hard.
You are a very strong you, and you are a fighter.
The urge to deny pain, to laugh through tears, to grin and bear it, is an admirable one; but it can quickly become a tyrannical denial that we are in pain at all.
I’m sorry for the times you were hurt by people who did not cherish your preciousness.
Healing means owning the pain without pushing it away.
