“Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.” Psalms 43:5 KJV
Showing vulnerability is not a sign of weakness. Actually, it is a sign of strength to acknowledge your feelings and process your thoughts through them. It’s okay to cry and show emotions, but it’s not okay to suffer in silence. It’s not okay to walk around in life as if you have it all together when in reality you’re about to have a breaking point. You don’t have to wait until you have a breakdown to release the ailments of worry, anxiety, fear, shame, guilt, and anger. All these things do is break you down piece by piece, slowly, but surely.
Life is too short and there’s so much living to do. So much loving to do. So much to still laugh about. Seek therapy if you have to. There’s nothing wrong with seeking therapy. Find an outlet or a hobby to occupy your time and mind. Talk to someone, especially someone who makes you laugh. Breathe. Live. Love. Laugh. Let it go. Be free. Be vulnerable. It’s okay to have a moment of despair.
It is my prayer that during your moment of despair, you will lift your eyes toward the sky and remember the things God has already done in your life. As you remember, you become encouraged again. You smile again. You hope again. Not only because God has done so much for you, but because you know He will do it again. Without a shadow of doubt. A moment of despair can turn into a moment of praise.
