Your heart will always feel a lot of emotions that your words fail to explain. You can write them down and still feel that something’s wrong. Because sometimes other people’s actions make you feel trapped to react in a way that’s so unnatural to you. You’re reacting every day to their actions and it makes you feel weird to connect with your loved ones in a different way. If you’re used to always being there for others it can be tough to sit aside and do nothing.
In the past year I’ve learned that you don’t always have to find a meaning for your feelings; you don’t always have to fight with them until you understand them. Sometimes simple tasks like going out in the world and trying something new brings a new meaning to your feelings. Doing something creative connects you to your feelings.
Trying to make new connections, finding new people and knowing what they’re going through can change your perspective. It’s always the small moments and choices you make that change your path. Sometimes new situations validate your feelings and teach you to be humble.
When you’re hurt keep your eyes open because there’s always something that reminds you to breathe. It could be a song or a movie. It could be your pet or words coming out of a playful child. The best things in this life are always the simplest things, the simplest tasks. Whatever you decide to do when you’re hurt, just take it easy because at the end of the day you’re only human.
