Why is it that we constantly try to have everything together?
We don’t want anyone to see that inside we’re falling apart so we slap fake smiles on our faces and say that we’re merely “tired” or “stressed.”
Why is it that we have to fake who we are just so that we can fit in?
When did not having everything figured out become so shameful?
What’s wrong with crying or falling apart?
It happens to everyone.
So why do we feel like we’re so alone?
I guess it’s cause everyone feels obligated to keep their problems to themselves.
I guess it’s cause we’re too afraid to trust other people when we’re constantly let down.
I guess it’s hard to believe and have hope when so much shit goes on.
In the end though, guessing isn’t going to get anyone anywhere.
In the end, we just have to admit to ourselves and to others that we’re not perfect and that we don’t have it together and that it’s completely fine.
Cause it is.
It’s completely fine to not have everything figured out and together.
“Who gets to determine when the old ends and the new begins? It’s not on the calendar, it’s not a birthday, it’s not a new year. It’s an event, big or small, something that changes us. Ideally, that gives us hope, a new way of living and looking at the world, a way of letting go of old habits, old memories. What’s important is that we never stop believing we can have a new beginning, but it’s also important to remember that, amid all the crap, there are a few things worth holding on to.”
