Of all the things that we so gladly and willingly talk about, how many times are we willing to talk about our struggles?
About our failures?
Why don't we talk about the times that we've fallen down and have let ourselves down?
Why have we made this world so one dimensional?
Why is only happiness beautiful?
Why is only courage magnificent?
What about the people that are trying?
What about those that didn't end their lives but are still crying?
Why aren't we as open to talk about pain and hurt ?
Why can't we lend an open ear and a warm heart to someone that has a breaking heart?
Maybe, we need to shift our focus from the concept of a perfect and happy life to the sad and shattering reality.
And as per the seemingly endless limits of this universe, pain is an endless part of our lives.
Just like people fall beautifully in love, they are very likely to hit the rock bottom and maybe get hurt and then give up.
Love is beautiful, but love hurts us too.
This life is amazing but it can be pretty harsh on us too.
This universe is full of magic and wonder but at times it can unfortunately betray our faith and beliefs too.
But as long as we share our hearts with one another and talk about what aches us openly, we shall never be broken alone, we shall never be infinitely lonely.
So the next time that you get hurt or feel sad, don't hesitate in painting your words on the canvas of this life.
For art will always be valued even if the canvas is a little too torn, even if we don't always see a beautiful dancing rainbow, even if the universe breaks and begins pouring upon us.
There's a lot more to this life than petty perfection, there's a lot more of your heart that needs to be heard.
Let's start being supportive and let's open up to not only our pain but to the pain of others as well.
