The sun is shining. I look up to the sky and smile. Everything seems peaceful. The traffic noises become quiter while i go into the forest. Tiny leaves crackle in the warm summer wind. Birds above my head, earth under my shoes. The thoughts circle in my mind but I try to forget and concentrate myself on listening to the sounds of nature. I'm definitely not an "omg I love the nature so much" girl, but sometimes it's the only place where you can find silence in the midst of trouble.

Feeling deeply • Deeply feeling
Taught to shun that part of me
Feeling shame for feeling so deep
As if caring too much meant being so weak
And “pretty girls” don’t go that deep
So “crazy” becomes the new terminology
When the one seeing the one feeling
Is too afraid to go that deep
Triggerin a place they don’t want to see
A side of them they don’t want to believe
Afraid of their own vulnerability
To be “weak” is to care too deep?
As if the capacity to love has a finite peak?
Trying to unsee what my heart has seen
Like the pain in the eyes of a stranger
Looking down, just passing on the street.
I wanted to stop her
And talk to her
And listen to her
To be there with her
In that space where someone SEES HER in all her entirety
Showing her the love I always wanted to see
But then the reminder I am going too deep
And I cannot love a stranger I just passed on the street
It’s weird, its unusual, and it’s not “that deep”.
Clenching my jaw
And feeling “not me”
I lower my eyes
and try to be unseen.
The lesson that is currently unfolding for me:
You lose yourself to find yourself
To rebuild yourself and accept yourself
Just as you are created to be.
I will never again apologize for feeling too deep.
I will never suppress wearing my heart on my sleeve.
I will never again be anyone but mf me.
_Monday nights with this side of me
It’s the driving force of social media and the reason I do what I do.
Everyone is connected, and sometimes I feel like we lose fight of that when mindlessly scrolling through our feeds (I am guilty of this myself)
Social media was built on the premise of connecting people nearby and far away to express thoughts, dreams, and ideas.
I love this platform because it gives me the chance to put the SOCIAL back in social media.
I love this platform because it gives me the hands to reach more people and help more people.
If you’re reading this today, spend just a moment putting the SOCIAL back in social media, and connect with someone, even if it’s just a comment.
Humans are social creatures, so BE SOCIAL
