“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.
