Unmasked – On Joy & Sorrow
I am not one who assigns meaning to life’s ups and downs. I do not seek silver linings or believe in divine plans. The universe doesn’t guide me and my mind is existential. I struggle with concepts like faith and hope. But love? Oh baby, I love. And suffer? Yes, with bells on.
It can be exhausting to feel so much. I often sense my heart as raw and oozing. But I’m aware the reason I hurt so much is because I love so deeply. And the reason I can cry with laughter is because I’ve wailed in grief. So for both, today, I am grateful. This is the human experience, and I am engaged.
