Heartbreak shatters the shell around the heart and awakens its capacity to love

Today has been something. I have more energy than “normal” and “should” be sad under the “circumstances” but I’m either in denial or I’m feeling the joy of having advocated for needs that have been minimized — because they are the kind of needs that aren’t in the lower and “more important” levels of Mr. Maslow’s “hierarchy” of needs. I need to feel understood and resonant.
