Monday Moment: Joy & pain

JM Storm pain and beauty quote w logo

Whatever you may be experiencing at this moment, you are not the only one. If you’re as happy as you’ve ever been, know that someone else, somewhere else is, too. Same goes for nervous, scared, excited, and even that brutal, rock-bottom kind of sad. Whether it feels good or bad, you are not the only one.

All humans experience the same range of emotions. Sometimes they’re soft and fuzzy, and sometimes they’re like a knife, cutting straight through you. Occasionally, they float through you, and in other moments, they settle in, take up space and try to write your story for you. Some of us are more inclined to engage them than others. We all feel them, though, and we are never the only ones when we do.

That one, particular kind of beauty that only your energy can bring to only your body in only this lifetime, though? That’s all you, and even in this great-big-giant world, it is completely, utterly irreplaceable.

Things feeling especially hard lately? Maybe some scary thoughts you can’t seem to control? Call 1-800-273-TALK and just say “hi.” (en español 1-888-628-9454)
