Admittedly, I am not okay. I haven't been for a few weeks now. I have a ball of emotion stuck in my gut that I can't comprehend. I'm not used to compartmentalizing my feelings, so I guess I'll share it here. Some women feel the need to act like they're never scared, needy or hurt; like they're as hardened as a rock. I think that's dishonest. And yet I find myself hiding because I don't know how to feel at this point. At the same time though, i feel like I'm not being honest with myself - not true to the person I really am. I guess it's okay to feel delicate sometimes. It's okay to feel at your low. Real beauty is in the fragility of your petals. A flower that never wilts isn't a flower at all.
