You had this amazing way of shutting out the world when you felt down. But as much as I admired that, I knew the danger. I knew how shutting the world off had damaging effects, long-term.
How being numb meant you didn’t feel the love that whispered at the nape of your neck, the joy that rained on your skin, the peace that filled your lungs.
You’re not wrong for shutting out the world when you’re down, but you miss out on so much more when you allow them to win."
