    Girl Finding Her Heart

    Dear Unsealers,

    Tonight I found myself missing the past, a version of me that I no longer am anyomore. From the cocoon came the butterfly, and she is who I am when I let go. When I stop trying to control everything around me and allow life to flow. I was crying because she has been there all along. It hurt to know that I neglected her for so long and I found the version who found her heart. While allowing her emotions to overtake her. One of the things we as people have to realize is we are here to be human, and that means being emotional no matter how many times we are told that it is a weakness. I find strength in crying and being in my feelings and in a way it is freeing.

    To let go is to find out that we are here to experience happiness, joy, and love. We are also here to experience the other emotions too, saddness, pain, and anger. This is apart of the healing process and it will never be easy to feel any of these, but each side balances each other out. So I say to you reader let yourself be a mess sometimes. It is temprory and it won’t last forever no matter what you are going through. I will admit it at times I am a mess, but aren’t we all at times. Once I cried I found myself smiling because I released any and all pent up emotions. I am glad to come out of my cocoon.

    To all of you reading this;
    you are strong, you are capable and you are loved.

    • When you google “Is crying good for you?” The first thing that comes up is, “Researchers have established that crying releases oxytocin and endogenous opioids, also known as endorphins. These feel-good chemicals help ease both physical and emotional pain.”

      Crying is a release and a healthy one at that. It does not mean you are weak, or anything like that. If anything it is a sign of strength, as you are letting your body process life in a way that’s healthy and human. Thank you for sharing. xo Lauren
