“Healin’ and patience are lovers…don’t place the blame on your heart just to shut ’em up. There ain’t a rush to recover…”
This Inspirational Jam by Alessia Cara is dedicated to those who may be battling grief, hurt, depression, anxiety, etc., and are being told to simply pick themselves up and keep moving. I know for myself
“Easier Said” is a song about recovery. Instead of always seeking to be happy and ignore the bad, Alessia sings about the fact that basking in your sadness is necessary. And it is. It’s okay not to be okay.
I know all too well the importance of sitting in your feelings and going through grief and hurt. It is in moments of sadness where you are able to look at your circumstances dead in the face and better come to terms with whatever is going on. Acting like everything is okay all the time will ultimately have you in a breakdown mode when stuff finally hits you. No matter what anyone tells you, you simply can’t be strong all the time. It’s okay to break down, to vent to trusted people, and to sit in your sadness.
Prayer and positive thoughts to anyone battling depression, anxiety, and other mental issues. If you need to talk to someone, please consider reaching out to a hotline for additional help.
