{the truth}

{via}

The truth is...
...I'm exhausted.

The truth is...
...I'm afraid to write about my feelings on my blog these days. 
The truth is...
...I feel like I'm constantly on the edge of something amazing. 
The truth is...
...I also feel like I'm constantly on the edge of a panic attack. 
For the past few days, it's been ugly outside. Cloudy and grey, but not the kind of ugly that's relaxing or comforting. It has put me in a funk, and I couldn't figure out why the weather has been affecting me so.

It just started raining, and it hit me. I burst into tears. Maybe my soul needed that release, just like the sky did. 

I'm okay. I think I am, at least.

These kinds of posts are so great! I think it is so amazing when people can open up on their blogs...I am always too afraid too. Sometimes all we need is a good cry! I bet that felt good to just get it all out. I hope you start feeling better :)

Beautiful picture and beautiful words.

I think we all need that sometimes...that release.

Oh friend, we've all had those days/weeks/months. I hope the cry was cathartic!

Breathe and write through your tears, the words from writers carry our burdens and fears and inspiration. You don't always have to post your tears but you never know when something enlightening may come from those tears. Best of luck and happiness to you.

Oh girl. Sometimes you just need to cry, right? At least, for me, sometimes that's the only way to express All The Feelings. You have a LOT going on and I'm sure it can feel like too much sometimes. You're doing great.

Joelle Duff :: Something Charming said...

I've been feeling the exact same way. Chin up, cheer up!

Sometimes you just need a good cry for the sake of having a good cry. We all have bad days or days when were in a funk... hopefully the weekend will be amazing to you :)

It makes me sad that you're scared to write your feelings. I know there are haters out there, but this blog is all about you, and that's what I come here every day for. Don't be scared of harsh words or being honest, because those who love you will support you 'til the end, Joelle. You're an amazing & bright and INNOVATIVE woman. Thanks for being real. Just let go :) Thinking of you.

Your blog is such a beacon of inspiration Joelle! Don't ever give up, please!

i'm sorry i haven't been commenting more - your blog is a constant inspiration to me, & i need to let you know that more often. i think you're an amazing person who is going to do amazing things. i mean, you're already doing those amazing things... from your business, to your new font [which is SO cool & turned out great, by the way]... you've got this, ma'am! everyone has bad days [i've been having my fair share of them this week, too]. but the bad days make the good days that much better. i hope you have a great & relaxin weekend. and i also hope that you feel you can write more about your feelings on your blog soon - that is something i'm trying to do more of, even though it's difficult for me.


sorry for this novel-length comment, but i just felt compelled to reach out & let you know i'm here for you! ;)

Joelle Duff :: Something Charming said...

Sometimes a good cry is all it takes... I hope you felt better after! Know you've got a lot of bloggers behind you, cheering you on and ready to support you if you need it. <3

Thank you Evani :) It does help knowing that I have this amazing support system when I do need it! That's the wonderful thing about blogging, and I already feel so much better! xoxo

You don't have to apologize at all Lauren! I don't expect anyone to comment, especially since I don't comment as much as I should on other blogs. I do appreciate your support, more than you know! It makes me feel better knowing that I have so many people who love and support me out there, even if we've never "met" in real life :) So thank you, thank you so so so much for everything you've done for me, and for this sweet comment! I'm so thankful I found you Lauren :) xoxoox

Joelle Duff :: Something Charming said...

I won't be giving up any time soon ;) I just needed to vent! I so appreciate your support, thank you! xoxo

Joelle Duff :: Something Charming said...

It makes me sad that I feel that way too, but I just get so scared since I have clients that read my blog. I'm afraid that they'll be freaked out knowing that I have anxiety or whatever, but I'm still a real person! I so appreciate your support Aunie, more than you know, and I hope you know that I feel the same way about your blog. I'm so thankful for all of these amazing relationships I've made, and for this support system that I have. Thank you for the sweet words. I needed them! xoxo

Joelle Duff :: Something Charming said...

I definitely need to cry sometimes, you're right! I felt so much better after just putting this out there. Thanks for listening :) xoxo

Joelle Duff :: Something Charming said...

Thanks Sally! I hope you're feeling a little better too :) xoxo

Joelle Duff :: Something Charming said...

You're so right. I've just been needing that cry a lot lately! There is a lot going on, but I truly am so grateful for everything and everyone I have in my life. Thank you so much for the support and the kind words. I needed it! xoxo

Joelle Duff :: Something Charming said...

Thank you so much for this. We're all in this together, and I know that I relate better to people/bloggers if they're authentic and real. xoxo

Joelle Duff :: Something Charming said...

Thanks Carly! Feeling much better now :) xoxo

Joelle Duff :: Something Charming said...

Thanks my dear. I think we do...I'm definitely feeling better after I did! xoxo

Joelle Duff :: Something Charming said...

I'm afraid to open sometimes too, but it's necessary. People relate better when you're authentic, and they know when you're not being sincere! I just couldn't keep up the act anymore. And I do already feel better :) xoxo

Joelle Duff :: Something Charming said...

you know, I forgot the part about your clients. that is a very real concern. if they're as awesome as you are, none of them will think you're crazy :)
