Feelin’ all the Feels
Do you ever have those days when you have all these feelings inside of you but you have no idea how to put them into words? Yeah, that’s me most of the time. And today is just one of those days. I’m in my feels, fam but I’m struggling to formulate any type of sentence so I’ve created this temporary post with a list of quotes that are just speakin’ to me.
“It’s funny. I still feel like a little girl. I’m still looking around to check and see what other people are doing to make sure I’m not completely different; I’m still looking around for help, hoping for a quick nudge and a whisper of advice. But I can’t seem to be able to catch anybody’s eye. Nobody else around me seems to be looking around and wondering what to do. Why is it that I feel like I’m the only person who is confused and concerned about the choices I’ve made and where I’m headed?” – Cecilia Ahern
“As I grow older, much older, I will experience many things, and I will hit rock bottom again and again. Again and again I will suffer; again and again I will get back on my feet. I will not be defeated. I won’t let my spirit be destroyed.” – Banana Yoshimoto
“No one warns you about the amount of mourning in growth.” – Te V. Smith
“I’m fighting myself. I know I am. One minute I want to remember. The next minute I want to live in the land of forgetting. One minute I want to feel. The next minute I never want to feel ever again.” – Benjamin Alire Sáenz
“Painful feelings are, by their very nature, temporary. They will weaken over time as long as we don’t prolong or amplify them through resistance or avoidance. The only way to eventually free ourselves from debilitating pain, therefore, is to be with it as it is. The only way out is through.” – Kristin Neff
“The truth is this:
Love is an organic thing.
It rots and softens.”
– Clementine Von Radics
“Occasionally weep deeply over the life you hoped would be. Grieve the losses. Then wash your face. Trust God. And embrace the life you have.” – John Piper
“Someday you’re gonna look back on this moment of your life as such a sweet time of grieving. You’ll see that you were in mourning and your heart was broken, but your life was changing…” – Elizabeth Gilbert
“The difficult and the slow moving things eventually, eventually bear more fruit than anything. Do not give up. Do not stop praying. God will keep you moving forward. It’s the only good way. The only way we can grow, and we will.”
“Hang on. It gets easier and then it gets okay and then it feels like freedom.”
“If you love deeply, you’re going to get hurt badly. But it’s still worth it.” – C.S. Lewis
