  • It has to be okay to just let it all out.

    Like the rain sometimes fall from the sky, when it's dark and gray and sees no other way.
    It rains.
    Even in the world's most beautiful cities.

    Don't try to stop it.
    Don't try to force it to cease.

    It simply won't listen to you, because it's stronger than you.
    It's a part of you that you just have to accept.

    One day it will stop. And you won't even remember it happened.

    Your city will be as beautiful as it was before.
    So for now, be okay with letting it all out.
    Don't try to chase that cloud, it will just come from behind and corner you.

    Get wet.
    Move on.

    That's what it's like to be, so called, strong.
