What Happened?

When did everything become so complicated so that we were afraid to laugh, for fear that we would hear our voices and how they radiate with joy. Afraid that we will achieve the impossible and become stronger than we thought we could be. Afraid that our smiles will beam and show someone that we are happy again. That we are not broken. And when you smile those tiny pieces you thought were broken inside you are actually healing you and not hurting you because the truth is no one can hurt you unless you let them. Don’t let them dull your shine. You are so much more than that.
