Show the world your brave face.
Don’t let circumstances defeat you.
Be strong for your family.
There’s no time to fall apart and it doesn’t help anything anyway.
There’s something quite therapeutic in letting yourself let go.
Have a good cry.
Take a day to wallow.
Moan about it to a friend.
Allow yourself to feel how much it sucks.
Whether your it is something monumental or if it’s a bunch of little things that all add up to something big.
You’re allowed to fall apart every now and then.
If you don’t let yourself, if you keep pushing everything down and pretending it’s all okay, sooner or later, one last little thing will be added to your plate and you’ll crack.
Better to let yourself feel what you feel when you’re feeling it.
You don’t have to have it together all the time. You are allowed to show weakness, to be hurt or vulnerable or upset.
And if that means you need a little time to fall apart, take it.
We’ve all been there.
