Humility and grace

When we choose to guard our heart rather than risk it, we may avoid some pain, but the greatest heartache of all is never knowing what it's like to love without walls or conditions. Though it may be hard to understand, the people who break our hearts the most are our greatest teachers. Pain and grief are the catalyst for teaching us empathy and perhaps even self-love. We can use pain to build character. It can make us stronger, more resilient, more compassionate, more loving...


  1. Today I made the choice to open my heart and share my pain. It made me cry more than if I continued to hold it in. I'm ready for change.
