Read this if you need a hug

Many of us have lived through things we would never have thought we were capable of, and we are much less afraid than we used to be.

The process of wounding awakens us to our strength.

It shuffles our values, and the top priority is never what we thought it would be.

It’s never about perfection, or power.

It always turns out to be about love.

Knowing ourselves to be vulnerable and our time here to be limited, we’re freed to live more passionately, and fully than we have before, to discover what’s worth fighting for and who we are.

Real strength is buried at the depths of any wounds we have survived.

(This was helpful for me; maybe it will be for you too. If not and you just want to tell me to shut up, I get it.)
