You Don’t Have to Feel Guilty for Feeling

It’s okay to feel discouraged sometimes.
It’s okay to cry.
It’s okay to feel your heart break.
It’s okay to ask, “Why?”
It’s okay to stand and it’s okay to kneel.
It’s okay to just sit in it for a while.
It’s okay to feel whatever you feel.
You don’t have to feel guilty for feeling.
You don’t have to fight it. You don’t have to run.
Just know that the sun will rise again
and show you all that you’ve won.
-Karen Molenaar Terrell

“The sharp experiences of belief in the supposititious life of matter, as well as our disappointments and ceaseless woes, turn us like tired children to the arms of divine Love.”
-Mary Baker Eddy
