give: give yourself permission to be sad

tears1

There is nothing wrong with feeling sad. It is a natural emotion. For some odd reason, our society makes us feel guilty for crying as if tears are for the weak. Well if that is what you believe, then it’s okay to feel weak, to feel vulnerable, to feel fragile. In fact, the most delicate parts of ourselves are the most entrancing qualities. Those tiny moments, late at night when it’s just you and the darkness, are times when the truth of you comes to the forefront. If anything, sadness is a sign of the strong–the ones that are able to truly feel in the moment. Without the tears, there would be no appreciation of smiles so embrace all of it–the mess, the mystery and the beauty.
