Dear Me

We all have those moments where we just feel defeated. Defeated with life. Defeated with events in our life. Even just defeated with ourselves. It’s okay to just cry. Cry for yourself, cry for relief. I have found this therapeutic lately. Sometimes you don’t know why your crying and that’s okay. We can become tired of being strong for so long that we tend to lose who we are in the process.

I can say for myself, after losing my cousin who was like a brother to me it has been difficult to say the least. Faking to be “okay” or “happy” is beyond exhausting, especially when you feel like your drowning. I have learned so far that being tired is okay. It’s okay to not be okay. Life may not give you what you can handle or what you wished for but sooner or later things get better. At least this is what I’ve been telling myself. Find reasons to live life, to simply live. It may be difficult to continue or even just to breathe but keep fighting through.

One day you are going to be proud that you didn’t give up

Don’t give up yet
