Couldn't we just have the good without the bad?

Hey, you! 🙁

I know that God didn't promise days without pain and laughter without sorrow or even the sun without the rain, but on some days like today, I can't help but think - couldn't we just have the good without the bad?

So, I received bad news yesterday morning from a very close friend of mine. I know that I should think positive and not let the fear get to me, but I've been here before and it hurts. It freaking hurts. And I'm scared, but I can't let her know that. She can't know that I cried on and off the whole morning. She can't know that I'm being triggered and experiencing it all over again. She can't know.

Whatever happens, we'll get through this, is what I told her and I mean it. So, this is it - one day of crying and feeling all kinds of horrible. Because come tomorrow, I'm not going to let this get to me. It was caught pretty early. It's gonna be removed soon. This is unfortunately something that lots of women in the world go through and fortunately beat. And pretty soon, it will be put behind us.

I'm torn between showing up at her place to hug her and giving her the space that she likes. So, I've settled with the latter, hoping that she'll call for my help because it's right there whenever she needs it. She knows that. ❤️
