hello there, friend,

the heavy you speak of, the pull to write down what's on our hearts, to be real and authentic is a tough one. we have to know that when we choose not to speak our truth online, it doesn't mean we don't have one. it doesn't mean we are inauthentic... it means some of our struggles aren't for everyone to know.

some days i feel like you do. i'm not sure what to say here in this space. some days all that is on my heart and in my mind is not for sharing publicly. like you i strive to be authentic and honest, vulnerable and real... and yet.

i've noticed my own tendency lately to share less online. i'm not sure if that's a function of this season and my need to turn inward or if it's a way of protecting my tender and fragile heart.
