Or, Maybe…

Or, Maybe…

No! No! No! 

Whoever taught you faking happiness and hiding pain is a sign of strength was wrong. I’m sure that lesson was well intentioned, so we’re not going to skewer the teacher here because I had similar teachers.

But it is wrong.

Remember how we learned Pluto was a planet? Wrong.

This idea that we can not be ourselves. We can’t be vulnerable. We can’t be authentic. We can’t be imperfect.

Well, it’s just plain wrong.

Life is hard, messy and painful. It is also beautiful. It is all those things and more than I can find words for in these short posts. Please be yourself. Please express yourself honestly. If you’re in pain, let us know. We want to help. And when your genuinely happy? We want to celebrate!
