You Don’t Need To Carry This

Please put it down.


The weight of it is not making you stronger.









This is from one of my favorite pieces I’ve ever created.

Because I need to remind myself of this, often.

If you would like to see the entire post:

Put It Down

Something told me to post this again.

I hope if someone needs to be encouraged to put this down,

That this helps.

    I remember this one,
    There is shame
    There is blame
    That we need to tame
    To love our own name
