This is so important to remember, but so hard to tell people without minimizing their pain. Well said.

I like this quote from Victor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning: “But there was no need to be ashamed of tears, for tears bore witness that a man had the greatest of courage, the courage to suffer.”

Great words of hope and encouragement. Thanks Wendi for sharing and caring. Peace and blessings. The challenge is seeing the opportunity in crisis.

Peace and blessings to you, too. Yes, it is definitely challenging to see the opportunity in the midst of a crisis ( or one crisis after another, which has been my experience over the last couple of years). Some days my wiser, more philosophical self speaks through articles like this one. Other days I cry and/or yell a lot and think life sucks and will only get worse.

On those days I try to remind myself that I’ve thought situations and life in general were hopeless in the past and been wrong. ❤️😏Winter always becomes spring at some point, just not as soon as I want it to.
