In John Green’s book “The Fault In Our Stars”, the character Augustus Waters said that “pain demands to be felt”.
Like happiness and joy, you are an important emotion to feel.
It shows others and even myself that I’m allowed to be sad.
Pain is shown and expressed in many ways, and for me, it’s where I’ve been able to discover more about myself.
Crying is a sign of strength, and it’s also where I’m comforted in many ways.
You’re the emotion that motivates me to find joy when it feels impossible to laugh.
So, when I’m feeling pain at any moment, I’ll sit with it like an old friend and release it when the time is right.
To those, like me, who are scared to feel their pain: Your feelings matter, and your reservations are valid.
Remember to feel your feelings whenever you want to.
