“When a woman finally learns that pleasing the world is impossible, she becomes free to learn how to please herself.” ~ Glennon Doyle Posts from HealthyExpatParent.com/Facebook Stuck with me when I read this: for feeling it all Blessed are you who feel things big. You who might feel embarrassment because of how overwhelming things can be. Blessed are you who need reminders that those emotions are not bad or good. They are just . . . information. You feel angry because this is unjust. You feel sad because this is awful. You feel tired because this is exhausting. Your emotions are not wrong or bad or lying to you or telling the full truth. They are giving you a bit of data that you shouldn’t ignore. We love, and lose, and fall, and get back up, and fail, and try again. Your humanity is not an affront. We are reminding ourselves that this is who we are, how we’re made: to feel the pain, the grief, the stress, the risk, the fear, the heartbreak. So, you beautiful creature, here is your permission slip to feel it all. To feel the joy and delight and excitement. And the sorrow and fear and despair. All the yellows and pinks, and violets and grays. Because you are the whole damn sky. ~The lives we actually have Latest Podcast episodes on the Big Purple Blob https://www.healthyexpatparent.com/post/what-s-happening-on-the-big-purple-blob Happy Monday!
