Maybe you know it well. Sadness, when shattering ache defies cold numbness. Heartbreak, when we hold the jagged remains of our rib cage in the palms of our hands, clinging to a shred of childish hope. Loss, when we realize something is too wild to keep, and the harder we fight for it, the harder it fights us back until we’re left a broken shell of what once was. It’s all pain, and it’s something that connects us all. It reminds us we’re human, and that we’re meant to feel, to heal, to grow. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day, but for now, trust in this journey, because pain is the cost of our breathing, our living.
It is a reminder that we’re alive, that we’re 100% human.
