In this world of fast paced, trending, instant, non stop, next day, move on and forgotten stories, I refuse to let yours be one of them. There is no need to rush out of this space of being. It’s life right now. Don’t feel ashamed of that. Sometimes full of heartbreak, pain and confusion. It’s overwhelming. There is no need to feel like you are a burden. You are not a burden to me. Your feelings matter and your loss matters. Your grief will not be buried in tomorrow’s post, or hurried away, lost in slides. Never questioned or lessened by time. You will have a loud, strong voice, so scream if you need to. Cry if you need to. You will be heard. You won’t be shhh’d.
Your story is not pitied here. Your story is strength and valued with honour. Your story is part of a community of other women who are strong and resilient and deeply empathetic. Who understand you. Who honour where you need to be today. Who respect where you have been. Who will sit with you and never question or judge your emotions. We are each humbled by each other’s stories. We understand how exhausted you are. How much you sacrifice. How much of your time and energy you give every single day. And we can deeply understand how helpless you might feel at times. We are with you.
So be gentle on yourself. Stop beating yourself up about how you are feeling. About being quiet, sad, tired… You are not ‘too emotional.’ Sweet girl, remember the million times you had to be extra courageous even though you felt terrified? Remember all the times you had to talk yourself out of bed. Or to attend that social function. To go to work and see that colleague who triggers you. Remember all the times you stayed positive listening to the ‘advice’ from everyone trying to ‘help.’ How much energy that all took to stay calm and not loose your shit. Remember all the times you had to give the last bit of energy you could muster to someone else, because they needed you. How depleted you felt. Don’t ask why you are feeling this way, like it’s a failure.
My god you survived all that. My god be proud. Be proud. Rest. ❤️
