Life scares me. More than I would like to admit.
I never really notice how scared I am, until life hits me. When it’s too late to tell someone I love them one more time. When sickness overcomes health. When sadness turns into suicide. When protests turn into wars. Life changes within seconds, and all we can do is let it.
I have been really struggling to write a blog for months now. I just cannot seem to get my words to paper lately. Whenever I sit down to write, I have a million thoughts and pictures going through my mind that I can’t focus on just one aspect.
Life right now, scares me. And it wasn’t until I started writing this blog that I realized this is the reason I just cannot seem to write. How do you write about one thing in a world filled with so many fires? Honestly I am not sure. But if there was one thing I wish to put out into this world right now, it would be this:
Make sure to tell the ones you love, that you love them every single moment you can.
Yes, life scares me right now. Not only because of the fires. Not only because the devil is our president. Not only the police brutality. Or the global pandemic. But because on top of all of that, life is still going on.
It has been months and months of stress and pain for all people in this world. No matter who you are, you will feel the energy that surrounds you. You will be effected by the world. And life might have started again, you may be in school or back at work, but the world is still hurting.
So when you are crying in bed and you don’t know why, hold yourself. When you are overwhelmed but can’t think about what it is specifically, let yourself lay down and breathe. You are this world, you need to heal too.
Be kind to yourselves. You shouldn’t need an excuse, but if you do, blame the world. Everyone may not admit it, but everyone feels it.
