Story:

Seeing other people say to our friends and family "be strong" hurts. We know we need to be strong but in reality that actually hurts us in the long run. We start to bottle our emotions inside of us as we approach the inevitable explosion 💥. We lash out, we act abrasive, we do things we may regret, and we start to see tunnel vision. "It's the end of the world" type of feeling. It doesn't go away. It eats at our heart and soul. No. We will not "be strong" because in order to be strong we must learn what it feels like to be weak, to be broken down, to reach the lowest point we've ever been - that's when we know how to become strong. Until then, feel it all and don't be afraid to cry either. We all have been there but we also have to know when to reach out when it's become too much to handle. We are strong together. ☝️️
