You write until the pain in your fingers resembles the ache in your heart. At what stage does physical pain drown out the mental? Does it ever?

What’s more beautiful than seeing the flaws but knowing that the potential is greater? We’re all hurting. Take off the mask and let the cracks show. See who is there to help you fill them in and embrace them.
