Thanks for sharing

It is a great joy to share my what my heart has expected over the years in hope that it can reach someone that are going through their grief. In the black communities we don’t share our feelings because we think it’s a sign of weakness but it’s not, so please try to let go and let God heal you there is help for all that take that first step help is on its way. Don’t feel shame we all have stories to tell get the help step out from that pride, and help yourself. Thank you for sharing.
