So much time spent trying to be strong, when maybe we’re afraid.
Or because we fear being vulnerable.
But what if being strong also means being receptive?
Understanding that emotions are complex and sometimes messy.
That it takes strength to sort through these feelings and understand them better.
As humans, we have a penchant for making things harder than they need to be.
Always so driven by action. Maybe strength means knowing when to give yourself a break.
