Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack, a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.
We are all broken in our own way. Something in the past that haunts us, something in the present that we can’t stop thinking about, something in the future that leaves us sleepless and worried.
When was the last time someone asked you how you were doing and you didn’t say “good”
Because the truth is we’re scared to show our true emotions.
We’re afraid to let people in.
We don’t want to tell people the truth.
We don’t want to let people know we’re hurting inside.
We simply say “good” because it is easy, unquestionable and over with instantly.
Why are you scared to open up to people?
Why do you think it’s hard to tell people we’re hurting?
Why is it hard to be honest with family and friends?
What do you think?
Are you scared for them to know the truth, to look weak?
Maybe you just don’t want the attention.
Or maybe you don’t even know how to explain yourself.
What is happiness to you?
Can you actually answer that?
At the end of the day, we all go through struggles, hardships, heartbreaks, losses, trials and tribulations, times when you feel your world is crashing down.
So please, before you judge someone from the outside, get to know them first.
I hear all the time “I hate ______” but how can you hate someone without even knowing them?
Please, please, please, be kind, to everyone, try your best to at least, because everyone you know is fighting their own battles that chances are you know nothing about.
