Tears For Healing. 2017.51.

Tears For Healing. 2017.51.

Like many I have thought tears shed were a sign of not dealing with what is or what was.

I was wrong.

I have been shedding tears more than ever in the past few months, and over the past 2+ years, and whilst I knew in someway they were helping I continued to see them as a sign of weakness.

I take that back.

When I saw these words from Washington Irving I realised I have been healing myself and will continue to do so.

Sharing them here:

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love.

Washington Irving


The grief of losses of lifestyle & what I’ve left behind since 2014 is there but also I have hope that my tears are helping me accept the changes I am noticing as I am ageing. ❤

Do you shed a few tears, have a good weep and allow yourself to heal and accept what is?
