It seems that even though it is hard to open up about the hard things we go through in life, it actually brings more opportunities to connect with people who struggle with the same things.
Ever since I've (openly) confronted my recent issues with anxiety and depression, I've been able to find other friends who have confided in me about similar problems they've dealt with or are currently facing. There is beauty and strength in numbers. We aren't meant to do this life alone.
Open up your hearts, my friends, and the world is available to you with open arms, full of opportunities to grow and thrive. Not alone, but together, amongst the ones we love.
