Some days it feels like I can't breathe...
Some days it feels like I can’t breathe.
Like the air has been sucked out of my lungs.
Like no matter what I do...nothing is working.
Like I’m drowning.
Like there is no way out.
Like giving up.
Most people won’t tell you that part.
The part where it feels impossible.
Where your body and soul feels like they are being split and half.
Where there aren’t enough tears.
They don’t tell you about the fear. The pain. The regret. The overwhelm.
That hit out of nowhere.
But I can guarantee you. We ALL have days like this.
Weeks like this. Moments like this.
What’s important is who you are when they hit.
Are you the person who avoids the feelings. Pushes them down. Keeps on moving.
The one who lets the feelings take over and destroy the entire day.
Or the one who says ok. I’m going to go there. I’m going to feel the thing. All the way through.
And then I’m coming out on the other side.
We can’t jump from I can’t breathe to rainbows and fucking Unicorns.
And the truth is.
We don’t have to.
But we can shift. We can set a timer. Feel the feelings. Cry. Let it all out.
We can pick ourselves back up.
Look for the good.
Take fear back out of the driver’s seat.
One. More. Time.
And move on.
That’s the difference.
It’s not about whether or not the feelings hit.
It’s about what you do with them when they do.
The choice is up to you.
What will you decide.
I see you. I believe in you. I love you so damn much!!!
