Essay 197 • Sep 18th 2017

When we hurt, we move.
There’s just something beautiful about raw emotion. The pain that breaks down all labels and just leaves you with the human. At our simplest form, we are raw, we are messy, but we are pure. Those who empathize will feel you, and you will feel them.

Our bodies can tell so many stories through pain and hurt. Nothing is needed to be said. When we hurt, we move, and ultimately, we move people.
