"It's very important to talk about it; very, very important."
Society sends us the message that we are supposed to be joyful, and that the holidays are a time for celebration and connecting with people we love. But all we know is that we feel worse than ever.
But the thing about this new normal is that the void never goes away. The new normal never really becomes *normal* normal to you because you know what the real normal is supposed to look like. You experienced the authentic version.
This life will bring you trials and tribulations. Maybe you've lost a loved one, maybe you're going through a break up, or maybe your depression is really getting the best of you. No matter the situation, God is here. He meets us where we are at, and His word gives us encouragement during times of grief and heartbreak.
"If you spend 102 days completely focused on ONE thing you can achieve miracles. Make a film, write a novel, get MMA ripped, kick heroin, learn a language, travel around the world. Fall in love with someone. Get 'em to love you back." —Patton Oswalt
