Everyone knows saying goodbye is hard.
But have you ever thought about how difficult it can be to say hello? Especially after a painful goodbye?
When all you want to do is crawl in bed and hide from all the heartbreak and soul-ache and betrayal, embracing hello is scary.
It means opening yourself up to someone new, putting yourself in a vulnerable place- knowing that you could get hurt, but reaching out, taking someone by the hand, and sharing a smile, a little glimmer of yourself.
But it’s worth it.
Because saying hello is a step towards healing. Embracing hello as part of life means that you recognize that there’s always the possibility of goodbye, but life is too short not to love people now.
And you never know, sometimes all it takes to launch a beautiful friendship is hello! So open your heart, and let people in. It’s amazing how hello can make the world a better place.
