“You start to shut down. This security process is not apparent but the guards you have worked so had to put away, retain their post around your heart and walls slowly but surely began to be built.”
“If the person you love, woke up one day and decided not to love you- you will be okay. You will move on. You will love again. You will thrive without them. And guess what? Newsflash: They will thrive without you.”- Simone Holloway, 2020.
“The what-ifs are the worst and they come without permission. They come without warning. Like all terrible things with no mission but to distract, the what-ifs always come. They come and suck the life out of a person, leaving them drained of happiness, courage and grit. I was contending against the possibilities of things taking a turn for the worse. I was fighting against moments that did not happen, against that which was still unknown. “©Simone Holloway, 2020.

“One of my favorite passages of scripture is the shortest one in the book. John 11: 35 simply says, “Jesus wept.” I love this verse because it shows a savior in touch with the human condition: pain.
