We need to revive

“We all have come a long way and we’re still running.

Let’s just stop for a while and take a breather.

Just for this moment let’s forget about being strong and peel off these disguises that hide our inner battles from the outside world.

Let’s remember that we’re mere human beings with fragile hearts.

It’s okay to be weak.

It’s okay to be vulnerable.

It’s okay to long for empathy other than sympathy.

It’s okay if this soul desires to be in the presence of only those who help in its healing, because those who help us heal are the best.

The journey will continue and we will continue getting up after falling.

We all have come a long way and we’re still running.

Let’s just stop for a while and take a breather.

Because there are miles to be covered and we need to revive.”
