Today, the following quote in a FB post inspired me.
“We can never judge the lives of others,
because each person knows only
their own pain and renunciation.” ~Paulo Coelho
While this may be true, it lead me elsewhere:
But we can try to understand another’s pain,
and we can try to lessen another’s burdens.
And if we cannot do either,
we can simply offer another a consoling shoulder
to lay their weary head upon and
the embrace of friendly arms
to ground them while they put
in place the pieces of their fractured souls.
~M. Anita Bailey
