The longer we carry the weight of unexamined losses, the heavier they become. Through the experience of processing, of coming to understand the sources and manifestations of our pain, we lighten our load and become stronger. We find our capacity for healing, for forgiving, and ultimately for understanding the blessings that come from despair. — Rabbi Elie Kaplan Spitz (Healing from Despair: Choosing Wholeness in a Broken World)
yup! that was the idea!
So very, very true. This goes right along with Al’s piece.
