“Nothing haunts us like the things we don’t say.” -Mitch Albom
What an inspirational and profoundly accurate quote. Whether it be through writing, with loved ones, or in therapy, if there are things that are still forefront in your mind that prevent you from living well – Get them out! Part of life is love and loss. It is how you handle the loss, the dark times, the difficult moments that ultimately defines you. We all have our crosses to bear, but it is important to always have faith.
Faith that things will get better. Faith that things can be better. Whether it be a faith in God, science, or a purple donkey… It is crucial that you believe in something. “If you can’t have faith in what is held up to you for faith, you must find things to believe in yourself, for a life without faith in something is to narrow a space to live.” –George Woodbury
Let your past help mold you into the person you want to be. If you’re unhappy with how things are currently, make a change! Nothing is stagnant in life, unless you choose to be. Live the life you’ve imagined. Cast doubt behind you and embrace who you are meant to be. Find joy in the mundane. Follow what speaks to you. Live!
