be where you are

i believe it is not only important
but also necessary
to offer ourselves the gift of compassion.
i know that for me,
when i am going through something
the only way to get to the other side
is to allow myself to be in it in the first place.
i have to feel it,
every bit of it,
sometimes how ridiculously hard it is
sometimes glimpses of how beautiful it is
other times how simply debilitating it is.
i have to face it 
every single day 
until it isn't there anymore
or until it looks 
completely different.

sugarcoating or masking the truth of where we are
does not lead us out of the dark,
does not bring the light to where we are fallen,
and does not remove the shrapnel 
from our soul.

be where you are. 
love yourself there. 
it's okay.
