i want 2 be honest about sadness. yes, i wish to transform it, but i also do not wish to deny it. i've been going through it for a minute now, and it's confusing. i feel very alone. i deeply miss my best friends, my inner*circle, but i also understand that sometimes, a girl gotta face this stuff, and maybe just on her own in moments. i surrender to this day, to rest, to everything i feel. i do not wish for your sympathy, i do not want to be directed to links or opinions that might "help me," because now more than ever, i really really really feel like my own voice, my own tools are being asked to come forth more fiercely; i know myself. outside information is often too much. knowing instead that i am heard, that you believe i will rise, this is the best thing ~ this is what i need. the fotos shown here were taken originally by J-Art Photography, embellished by Kelly Shaw Willman to express,
"i look into you, i give, but i cry a lot in private these days."
