i hardened under the last loss. it took something human out of me. i used to be so deeply emotional i’d crumble on demand. but now the water has made its exit. of course i care about the ones around me. i’m just struggling to show it. a wall is getting in the way. i used to dream of being so strong nothing could shake me. now. i am so strong. that nothing shakes me. and all i dream is to soften. l numbness - rupi https://inspirational.ly

[IMAGE] That last loss? The one that broke you? The reason it won’t stop hurting is because you’re avoiding feeling the pain. Admit that it hurts. Be pissed. Be sad. Because the walls you’ve built around yourself only serve to trap that pain in there with you. Tear them down. Feel it. And move on.
