I heard something today that broke my heart
Shook me to my core
Turned my world upside down
Made me question everything I have ever known
Evoked feelings of anger, sadness, remorse, disgust, angst
I wanted to go into the bathroom stall and puke my guts up until I felt better
Until my insides were numb
Until I made this raw, scraping feeling in the pit of my stomach go away
I knew that kind of relief is temporary and soon fleeting
I also knew that
I didn’t want to feel the way that I felt
For those of us who have been through a season of escapism
and come out on the other side
We are fully aware that the only way to remain mentally, emotionally and spiritually sound is to sit in our feelings
No matter how difficult
No matter how long it takes
Acceptance is key
This is an honest in your face post about life…and the fact that it isn’t always so wonderful. Written by Joy over at Even A Girl Like Me, this is a great read. If you have ever suffered through a season of your life that was tough, or even had a really bad day or two…or three, this ones for you. Life is not always fair, and it for sure isn’t easy.
