HOW ARE YOU FOR REAL?

Saturday, August 25, 2018

how are you?

I'm pretty sure we've all lied to that question, even if you didn't realize or mean to. I'm pretty sure we all hold the true response back bc

1) its our problem, we tell ourselves. not even a big deal anyways
2) maybe we are afraid and don't want to face the truth/answer the question ourselves
3) (depending on the person) they don't rly want to know anyways. its just a formality

sometimes when asked that question my quick response is "good", and then I hesitate inwardly but ignore it, shrugging it off. but maybe that's not ok.
healing is a journey, it doesn't happen overnight. healing doesnt always mean you won't stumble and slip back. healing is realizing that you aren't all "good" and that thats okay. healing it talking with someone you trust, even to get it off your chest. healing is learning to love, live and laugh again. healing is taking a break, and knowing that that break is ok. healing is pushing forward, even when you don't want to. healing is a ritual of handing your life and fears over to Jesus - over, and over, and over and over again. healing is realizing that its ok, even things don't turn out ok. healing is taking a step.
so. how are you for real?

p.s. honestly, this post may or may not be as much for myself to figure out some thoughts + look back on as it is for all of you. but I rly hope that this'll be a bit of encouragement for someone else out there xxxxxx

if you could put your current emotions into one word what would it be?
what can i pray about for you??
