Why Having Demons Makes Us Human

Why it's Ok to Have Demons.png

Hi there beautiful people! I have a sentimental blog post for you this week because my mood has been an emotional one. I want to talk about demons because let's face it we all have them. Sometimes we may think we have conquered them and some how they creep back upon us. 

Many of you know I am a divorced mom, I know I've talked about this enough but what you may not know is how that amongst other things some times it haunts me. Like how bad I feel some days that my son goes back and forth between homes, or how much it hurts when I have to say goodbye to him when he goes with his dad, or how hard it is to explain to him when he asks why can't we all live together?

Everyone reading this will have some struggle they are thinking about whether its a divorce situation, someone you loved you may have lost to a disease or some other tragedy, maybe you were bullied in school, whatever the case is we are all battling demons because we are human.

I am here to tell you that not only are you not alone, it's ok to feel whatever or however you feel. Feel it all until you find yourself healing from it and just remember that because something still brings tears to your eyes even after you may have moved on, it doesn't mean you are broken or back tracking it just means you are human. Some things happen in our lives that become defining moments for us but they don't define who we are. We chose who we want to be and what we want to accomplish. 

There are those moments when I feel alone or lost no matter how far I come or the progress I make. But this really great thing happens now that I have learned what healing and being human actually are. I allow myself to feel whatever I am feeling, acknowledge it and then look to see what it is that is still bothering me to move on from that.

Life is one step at a time and as long as we keep going there is no true failure. There are only lessons, some harder than others but lessons all the same. Not everything is supposed to make sense when were going through it but even in our darkest hours I have found something good can come from it even if it's simply showing us how strong we actually are.

We all have demons and it's ok because we are working on them and we are not alone. We are never alone. Remember how much we love you! Cry when you need to, yell in your room if your angry and hug someone you love when you want to. Just remember it's not only ok to feel, it's healthy and the only way to truly move on from what has hurt us.

In light of us all facing our demons, that also means being there for each other and to help one another. I would like for you all to check out our friend and fellow writer, Jaime Buckley & his family's story. The link is below. As always, stay beautiful, stay true and be happy!
