Evolving Emotions: Sadness

Things get heavy and sometimes feel inescapable, like you’re drowning in a sea of thoughts or worries. Know that the sky will clear but for now, let the clouds rain.










Life is difficult most of the time. We’re all on our respective journeys, battling it out against ourselves and our circumstances. Be kind to yourself in your current state of mind.










Pain doesn’t abide by schedules or deadlines. If things need processing, they need processing. There is nothing wrong with taking the time you need to heal, whether physically or emotionally. It will all be better in its own time and on your terms.
