Grief is like a ball of string. You start at one end and wind. Then the ball slips through your fingers and rolls across the floor. Some of your work is undone, but not all. You pick it up and start over again, but you never have to begin again at the end of the string. The ball never completely unwinds. You’ve made some progress.
Life is not the way it’s supposed to be…it’s the way it is. The way we cope with it, is what makes the difference.
Be gentle with yourself. Allow comfort and peace to come to you.
Let’s stop ‘tolerating‘ or ‘accepting‘ difference, as if we’re so much better for not being different in the first place. Instead, let’s celebrate difference, because in this world, it takes a lot of guts to be different.

If you have to judge people, judge them based on what they can do, not on what they cannot. Judge them based on who they are, not who they aren’t. Otherwise you are judging based on your own shortcomings.
