And I can't stop it. My throat is clogged and there are tears pulling at my eyes. I can't stop them. And it makes me feel so weak.
But I shouldn't feel like this. I should know that by now. All those years I've been staring in the mirror, not being able to look into the eyes of the girl staring back. Over and over again, I tell myself the same thing.
'No tears. No tears.'
Over and over and over and over again.
No tears. No tears. No tears. No tears.
But its different now. My mind and body have finally begun to realize what my heart's been saying all along.
Feeling pain is okay. Being sad is okay. Having anxiety is okay. Having a broken heart is okay. Shedding tears, it's okay.
Crying is not being weak. It's the result being strong for too long. It gives you peace.
'What doesn't kill you makes you stronger', right?
