The year 2020 has brought so much heartache to so many that when we are feeling overwhelmed or sad. When we want to let out a scream or ball up in a corner and cry, it seems we are selfish. How could we complain about our problems, feel sad about anything when we have so much compared to others. When we have been blessed not to know the pain that 2020 has brought to so many. But let’s not forget we are still only human, and while our pain may not be as great as others, it is still our pain. Please do not push it down and let it fester that is not healthy for you or anyone around you. Let out that scream, have a good cry, talk to someone about what is troubling you. Do what will make you feel better, and don’t feel guilty about it because you can’t help others if you don’t help yourself first.
Hurt left an indelible scar on my soul.
I cannot run from it.
I cannot hide from it.
I cannot pretend it does not exist.
It has become a part in who I am and what I will become.
So, I will not hide from it,
I will embrace it.
I will learn from it.
I will gain strength from it.
I will grow from it.
The scar will not be a symbol of my pain.
The scar will be a symbol of my survival.
The scar will be a symbol of my strength.
The scar will be a symbol of my rebirth.
Hurt may have left an indelible scar on my soul
but it can not stop me from moving forward no regrets, no remorse
