“Heaven knows we need never be ashamed of our tears, for they are rain upon the blinding dust of earth, overlying our hard hearts. I was better after I had cried, than before—more sorry, more aware of my own ingratitude, more gentle.” - Charles Dickens (Great Expectations)
i was editing some random pics for a friend…when i ran across this pic of mine that i had from 2011. in it i was crying and for some reason seeing the picture helped me personally. there are times when all u can do is cry, sometimes words aren’t enough and you have to let it out. i can remember exactly how i was feeling when i look at this picture and what was happening in my life that was causing so much pain… i have weird habits like taking pics when i’m hurt…but seeing where i was then to now…i’m so thankful i let myself cry and go through the process of dealing with life. i put the quote on my head because it’s a line from Great Expectations that Charles Dickens wrote that’s always stayed with me that’s a constant reminder that it’s OKAY to express how i feel through tears.
i know this is kinda a vulnerable pic, but it’s all good. plus if you know me, i’m pretty sure you’ve seen me cry at some point i hope whatever anyone is going through they realize they are never alone & life does get better.
