WOW — can I give you a #CushyHUG?
My cousin was taken away from us at age 28 — 15 years ago. The pain dulls, dimishes, but NEVER DIES — and, you know what, it SHOULDN’T because you CARE.
And caring is GOOD — GREAT, in fact!
Nobody should apologize for feeling TOO MUCH — that’s not to say that everyone should walk on ‘pins and needles’ around you….
..it’s just to say that being vulnerable is a sign of compassion and courage.
(despite the silly stigmas against tears — strong men and women don’t cry…bull…they are the ones who DO cry — the tears might not roll down their cheeks, but their insides are mushy with so much love!)
