I used to cry only when I knew nobody was there. I was ashamed. Showing your tears is weak. Nobody needs to see your anger, sadness or fear.
Being sad, angry or anxious is not synonymous for weakness, it’s a very normal human thing. Showing what’s inside us is a superpower. I learned it the other way around. Today, I know that no one should even keep adults from opening up.
Don’t be afraid to walk through a valley of emotions. They help getting to know yourself.
— Kali Mahavidya
