Art has the Power to Render Sorrow Beautiful #BreneBrown #Inspiration

 

art has power

“Art has the power to render sorrow beautiful, make loneliness a shared experience, and transform despair into hope.” -Brené Brown, Braving the Wilderness

I love this quote. This is why I have been writing about my pain and loneliness. This is why I have to continue to write. There is beauty here. It is cathartic to share the loss and hurt. To have people hear my words and relate and to encourage me and others in the same situation.

I cannot suffer in silence. It must come out. The beautiful thing is that it is exactly what is needed. In most cases, most people would keep quiet, refuse to open up, pretend that nothing bothers them. That is where the lie is. That is where isolation exists.

What are you going through? What do you want to share?

I won’t judge. I am not perfect. We need each other.

  1. My closest friendships took a bizarre turn this year (almost all at the same time but for different reasons) and I find myself feeling alone even in a crowd of people. It’s been really difficult, but I’m also finding out things about myself I’ve never learned before. So I suppose that’s a positive. Still, I hate feeling lonely and as though I have no one I can confide in.

  2. Silence can be a killer. Speaking out in any form is a good thing.
    I am in transition myself. And patiently await my next step. I’m starting over in every area of my life.
    Thank you for sharing and hearing my status.

  3. This is why I love the blogosphere. You come to meet like-minded people and you can share your thoughts freely without worrying judgment from others.

    Our posts here are out for the whole world to see so it feels liberating. Ironically, I can’t do the same on social media sites. The blogging community here is better, more friendly, and more encouraging.

    I’m happy for you that you have taken this positive outlet to express yourself. Hang in there, things will pass 🌻

  4. I love this. I think, for too long, our sensitivity as humans has been hidden behind fear of judgement. I’m just not sure how this ever came about; surely the joy of living with the heart out in the open surpasses the fear of it. Anyhow, I think the more people share posts and thoughts like this, Jason, the easier it will become for more people to open their own ‘heart doors’. Thanks for flying the heart flag so beautifully on behalf of us wide open souls. ☺️ ps. I hope your heart is mending nicely.
