People advise each other to not be scared, to not be mad, to not be sad, or lazy, or tired, or weak, or anything other than what’s true in this state. They say “you should” and “you ought” all the damn time. Instead, maybe, we just say, “be still” or “live in this sadness” or “allow the mind to warp and think and fear as it does” and just BE. That’s real shit. Allowing it all; the darkness as much as the light. Enough should-ing, more Be-ing. #lovethedarkasmuchasthelight
