The Uncomfortable Soul

“We like to pretend that high heels don’t hurt our feet, and that we always look as good as we do when we’re wearing make-up and our prettiest clothes. We like to tell ourselves that not every guy is the same, and that maybe he’ll change if we’re patient with whatever life throws our way. We hide behind smiles and mask ourselves in laughter while thinking maybe it’ll be enough to convince ourselves we’re really that happen; we tell ourselves we really need to be that happy. But sometimes, life isn’t okay, and it’s okay to not be okay. It’s okay to hurt, and sometimes, we just need a reminder that we’re only human. And as miraculous of a blessing as that is, it can still break you down, leave a mess, shake you up, and confuse you until you don’t understand what it means anymore. You’re going to hurt, you’re going to fall, and you’re going to make mistakes that – sometimes – you even know better than to allow yourself to make. But that’s okay. Sometimes, you just need a reminder that it’ll all be okay; here’s your reminder, beautiful. Hold on for better days, keep that gorgeous smile where we can see it, because I can promise you things won’t always be this way.”

    What a lovely read Elisha. It is indeed okay not to be okay and we should be comfortable with that idea cuz we all know that it’s not always gonna be like that.

    Aaah, this is so beautiful. I really thought this is going to be a long one, but when I got to read the last few sentences it feels like I want more. The bright side awaits! <3

    Love this, Elisha! Especially the part where it says, “It’s okay to hurt, and sometimes, we just need a reminder that we’re only human.” Also, I’m loving the laced top! Haha.
