Don't shut up


Letter for the future me

- Shut the cry!
- Shut up!
- Shut your chest...

But the body speaks, and how it says it all!
It speaks in the fingers hitting the table...
It speaks in the feet restless in the bed...
It speaks in the headache...
It speaks in the anxiety, the gastrits and the reflux...
It speaks in the lump in the throat...
It speaks in the sadness, the pump in the forehead...
It speaks in the insomnia...
You shut it down, but the internal chatter...
People get sick because they cultivate and keep things not digested inside their hearts...
To express yourself reassures the pain!
The pain is not meant to be felt forever.
The pain is a comma, so write a letter, a poem, a book.
Sing a song.
Take the sneakers and tap.
Joke around, make a painting, a text, meet friends even if it is virtual.
Go out for a walk and run.
Tell your psychologist, tell God. Paint yourself as an artist.

Talk to yourself, to your dog, scream at the sky, but don't shut up!!! Because is you "shut down everything you feel", in the end you drown.
Think, read, study, pray, but don't abash.
THE HEART IS NOT A DRAWER!
The body speaks!

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.

It's a topic that needs to be talked about way more than it should, especially in today's world: mental health. Whether it be anxiety, depression or O.C.D.

When Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in by the Supreme Court, she insisted overturning Roe v. Wade wasn't on her agenda. That landmark case made it possible for pregnant people across America to legally choose whether to have an abortion. There are many reasons a person would want to terminate their pregnancy. Money, age, health and sexual assault are just some of the reasons a person would choose to get an abortion.
