The amazingly talented Sally Lynn MacDonald wrote this as part of an art journal she is creating and I absolutely love it so I wanted to share it with you. Thank you Sally Lynn for sharing! Enjoy!
Allow others to deeply know you.
Take off the mask.
Wear your battle scars proudly. But remember that they don't define you. They are only a small part of who you are.
You are still becoming.
You are beautifully damaged.
Don't hold back and be guarded. It leaves a space that seems so much larger than what you show to the world.
Something is missing.
That something can be felt.
It's a void - fill it!
Or others can only fill in the blank with mistrust.
Ask for what you want.
You need to be heard.
Say it. Feel it. Know it. Trust it.
And dare I say it?... LIVE OUT LOUD!!!
