It's been my experience, that pain is one of the best/worst teachers. It mirrors your capacity to love. It shows you how deep you can really go or have gone. In fact, the greater you grieve, the greater you have loved.
So, wear your pain as a badge of honour. Wear it proudly, because it takes incredible courage to love. It also takes incredible courage to forgive those who do not love the same. We are all doing the best we can with the tools we were given and I am brave because I have loved.
Who have you loved today?
