Explore Hold On, Be Strong, and more!

Losing my daughter has done this to me.

You don't know pain until you're staring at yourself in the mirror with tears streaming down your face and you're begging yourself to hold on and be strong. THAT is pain.

Know it all to well...

I don't cry anymore. The hurt has just become a numb feeling I've felt over and over again.

The truth is.this is how people really do feel and nobody ever even takes the time to notice it.we all need that someone to lean on even if it's not family but a close friend or a teacher.it's hard to let others in but we can.

It happens to everyone

This is the most bullshit thing i've ever heard. Who says you need to be strong all the time? Who says it doesn't take strength to express yourself and let the tears fall? If you need to cry then cry.


Today's a day I need a nest, and more importantly someone to join me. Who ever needs a nest, let's build one. Post random funny things in the comments, start a conversation. We'll all be together in our nest.

For just that moment, with none of the staff around, her husband not yet returned from his lunch meeting, Penelope let herself feel her misery. She hated this life she was forced to live, to pretend that all was well and that her father-in-law wasn't threatening the death of her little sister if she failed in this role ... how was she going to continue this charade now that she was pregnant?

and she finally gave up, and dropped the fake smile as a tear ran down her cheek and she whispered I can't do this anymore by myself. God I need You.

And another

i'm just kinda tired, you know? i want to stop trying and not care for a few days. i'm a little tired of feeling like a failure. Very tired this month. Very tired.
