When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
Grieving is a necessary passage and a difficult transition to finally letting go of sorrow – it is not a permanent rest stop.
There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go.
We have to believe that even the briefest of human connections can heal. Otherwise, life is unbearable.
Can I see another’s woe, and not be in sorrow too? Can I see another’s grief, and not seek for kind relief?
