Some of my tweets from this morning:
When I was in the throes of my life’s worst trials I was only occasionally able to deeply appreciate how I was growing and evolving.
I’m now often grateful for my heinous experience – I’ve learned so many things. I also acutely remember what it was like to be in the dark.
I do not assume that all people make it thru the dark..clearly suffering on this planet is great and widespread and we have no crystal balls
For these reasons I know that it’s often cruel and not at all helpful to tell people that their trials are somehow for their own good.
People need to find that reality (or not) on their own. We are all on different paths and we know not what another’s is…
More on topic from Beyond Meds:
- If I can do it you can too — Really?
- There is a dance that only you know how to do
- Let life be your teacher
- We don’t know what is right for another. I practice that in speech and deed.
- You do not need to know precisely what is happening
May we all honor the mystery of our individual paths.
