i get frustrated with them
like i might get frustrated
with a screaming child
(that is seriously frustrating)
this week i managed to feel
(mercury retrograde loves me)
taught me to slow down
until those uncomfortable feelings
i relearned the lesson of giving sadness room to breathe
when you have a history with depression,
feeling sad can be
sometimes negativity won’t have a reason for existing
simply needing to breathe out of you
is it fun?
it it comfortable?
not at all
is it doable?
committing to feeling sad
sounds really silly
it’s really, really necessary
to honor all emotions
good and bad
if we are to ever objectively embrace our feelings
i ended the day relatively peaceful
only because i forced myself
to be uncomfortable
for a few hours
i’m still uncomfortable now
that’s all we can really ever do:
do you feel all your feelings? do you struggle? how do you cope?
