There comes an occasion where lamentation is so crucial.
It is medicinal solace; cleansing you of what builds up, causing you to stop dragging your feet. You have the ability to feel light again, I promise you. Even the most relentless fires can be doused by a monsoon.
Wash away your troubles. Rain down on them, hard.
Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but - I hope - into a better shape.
—Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. (via bestbookquotes)
