Do you need to be strong or do you need someone to comfort you?

Sometimes, we tell people to be strong but perhaps it is not what they need in the moment. We cry because out hearts can no longer bear the pain that that we feel. We break down because we cannot cope with the reality of our lives. We choose to retreat to isolation because we have been hurt by those who loved us or those we loved. We act out because we are troubled and can’t figure out all of the pieces to function normally. Telling each other to be strong should be comforting but it does not remove the emotional pain which we feel.
