Yesterday I had a bit a breakdown because I think I haven’t been myself for a couple of weeks. Hence, I couldn’t bring myself to post a thing as I thought I needed to stay away from the digital world. The feeling was familiar and it took me back to a year ago when I was going through a few waves of anxiety due to some unbearable self conflicts… among other external hardships in life.
This time, though, I am able control myself. Now, I didn’t resist from crying nor did I deny my sadness. I simply stopped questioning why I had felt that way but just embraced it.
Sometimes, the best cure is to have a good cry because eventually you’ll be fine. (Although, if it is disrupting your life and has been going on for more than 2 weeks, it’s best to ask for professional help.)
I believe that when you’ve tried so hard and that when you’ve reached your threshold, the best thing that you can ever do to yourself is to be vulnerable. Resistance is good to some extent, but sometimes you just need to let go. Crying is just one of the tools.
So, stop resisting. Just embrace it.
(On a side note, I’ve been obssessed with Morgan Harper Nichols. Girl crushing on her and all of her quotes and art pieces. Sigh)
