Yet ultimately we are alone

Making our way home by the candle of the heart.
Many times our light will go out.
But another light, one held by a stranger or a friend, a book or a song, a blackbird or a wildflower,comes close enough so we can see our path by its light. And in time we realize that the light we have borrowed was always our own.

You will be loved

The day when you can show your weakness and the other one does not use it to affirm his strength.

Fear is not real

"It is a product of thoughts you create.
Do not misunderstand me. Danger is very real. But fear is a choice."

Sorrow prepares you for joy

It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter.
It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place.
It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow.
Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.

- Rumi

A matter of choice

I recently realized that healing is not impossible.
But it has to be a choice you make consciously.
It doesn't come in time, it doesn't come when you move to another continent, it doesn't come when somebody else is pampering your wounds.

It comes when you decide to let go to the pain.
