“Just Say The Word … We’ll Take On The World, Just Say Your Hurt. We’ll Face The Worst” – You Me At Six, Take On The World
Today was a rough day, between the stresses of work and my personal life I admit I broke a little. I cried. Now for those who know me it can take a lot to make me cry, even in a fragile state of mind I don’t often cry. So it’s been tough but I’m finally picking up the pieces and plodding on!
What my little break down did teach me in the aftermath of the tears and heavy breathing is that why in the world am I scared to be seen like that?
Why should I apologise for being sensitive and emotional? Does it make me less human and undeserving of love? Do you ever feel like that? That the little quirks in your personality make it hard to want to put yourself out there?
Well funny story, turns out it only makes you brave. Those tears, those bruises and insecurities, the moment you let it all out and get it off your chest well DAMN! You suddenly feel and even look like a different person. I looked in the mirror about an hour after it all happened and you know what? I saw a completely different human being. I finally thought wow look how handsome you are when you smile and feel refreshed!
My point is, it is okay to let those walls you build so high crumble down. People who judge are not worth being in the same breathing space as you. People who are supportive and help you become the best version of yourself, those are the people who will accept you and LOVE you for you.
I’m so lucky to have such good friends in my life, so thankful for the love I feel when I’m down. Amongst all the drama and stress of everyday life, I feel truly at home within my circle.
Don’t be afraid to be you, ever. You are not made to feel ashamed, or small in comparison to anyone else.
Be brave, see the magic in everyday and keep dreaming impossible things ✨
Until next time dreamers,
