28 Feb When You Got Over It
When you got over it and stopped crying, what thoughts led you to dry your tears?
1) Did you believe there was hope? Did you want to fight to make it right and think of what the next steps were that you had to take?
2) Did you believe that things weren’t going to change, that you may as well put a smile on your face and keep going, keep working, because, well, what else were you supposed to do?
What do the effects of 1) or 2) have on your engagement with life?
Did you stop crying because you became stronger or because you became numb?
Why, really, did you get over it?
Or did you even get over it at all?
Maybe you should still be crying. Like an unadulterated, breathtakingly beautiful child.
