Sit with them in that space. Look as deeply as you can to see the part of them that’s red-hot at that moment. Like fire, its embers glow and crackle as they sob
It will never be okay (and that’s just fine)

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….’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!)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
