Still. — Laura Parrott Perry

We were together. I forget the rest.Walt Whitman There are no villains in this story. It is important to me that you understand this. It’s something I’ve learned at long last and at great cost – there can be loss and pain and hurt without anyone being the bad guy. We are pretty much all…

  1. “there can be loss and pain and hurt without anyone being the bad guy.” this is it! and the cusp of awakening, I think. The beginning of faith, for me, at least. Thanks for sharing, dear Elizabeth ❤️

  2. I love this. I’ve had an irreparable falling out recently with someone I was very close to. I’m still hurt and angry about it but those feelings are not helping and just continuing the pain. I have to find away to move past that I think.
    Thanks for sharing xx

    1. What I always try to do is focus on my own behavior….even if it seems totally the other’s fault. If I look long and deep, I usually find within myself the very behaviors, attitudes and shortcomings that I complain about in others. But the time has to be right- grieving is necessary. Maybe a time-out was needed in that relationship? We all fall short- every. single. one. of us. And that’s ok. Finding the compassion for ourselves first and then passing it on to other’s is the work.❤️
