Breathing shell

Losing our own self at once is hard and painful. But it makes us open to the new beginnings.

The hardest and most painful is to feel yourself fade away bit by bit. It’s like bleeding from a wound that doesn’t look dangerous or harmful to eyes, but it keeps on bleeding untill there’s nothing left but a breathing shell.

Losing yourself at once is not in your hands.

But don’t let yourself slowly fade away.

Put on an ointment.

If bleeding doesn’t stop, put on another one.

Just don’t let the wound turn you into a breathing shell.

Don’t let it bleed.

Keep going.

Because it’s in no one else’s but your hands.

    1. I am fine dear! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ŽThanks for asking. Yeah, I know it was different. You never know, there’s always someone who could relate to your words. So I wanted to write something that could help someone in dealing with hard stuff (because come on, everyone has problems) and find their ointment. Thanks again Jeni dear๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜
