As humans we all hold the struggle and the joy; darkness and light; weakness and strength. It’s a hell of a lot easier to show these opposites in something like sport. Much more difficult to allow the darkness to be exposed in life. Real life. So here you go, friends, the very human side of me to balance out the myriad images of the smile I’ve shared time and again. We are all human. Vulnerable. Afraid. Sad. Alone. And we are also resilient. Brave. Happy. Loved. Let yourself be human. Let yourself do at least one good and positive thing for yourself each day. Force yourself to when you feel you can’t. Even if it’s getting out of bed or washing your hair. Or letting yourself share your beautiful tears to this world. I and we are not alone in the struggle of being human. The deepest level we connect is through great struggle. Don’t ever forget this. Especially in this time that is so difficult for so many. Including me.” LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisementlast_img
