I wanted to write this post about vulnerability. I wanted to acknowledge and discuss the pain, heartbreak, loneliness, despair that I felt during that difficult year.
I wanted to recognise those feelings and accept that that’s how I felt and that that’s ok.
We are all human and part of having this human experience is feeling the whole spectrum of emotions. The people that are lucky enough to survive the ride all the way to the end, they learn from these chapters. They look back in their last moments and they remember the difficult times that shaped them into the person they became. It is only under pressure in the darkness where diamonds are forged.
So heed the lessons that come from these times of turmoil so that the pain is worth it and you can look back on your life as you let out your last breath and sigh and simply say, thank you.
