We are supposed to be feeling

“This human journey is not for the faint of heart. It takes courage just to feel. There are times when it seems it would be much easier to close off your heart, grow cold, and indifferent to the world, and stop feeling. Sometimes feelings catch you off guard, and they will not be denied. Let your feelings happen today. We are supposed to feel. Somewhere between resisting your feelings and attaching yourself to them, is this space of accepting them, feeling them, and then letting them go. It’s okay to feel what we feel. This is how we know we are alive. This is what it means to be human.”
