Everybody worries about something. We worry about the children, the house, the job, the spouse, our health, the holidays, our parents, friends, the car, what the neighbours will say, what comments we get on social media, or we just worry about worry.

Be Brave Enough to Love

The Anatomy of Loneliness by Teal Swan

We are initiated. We are apprenticed by pain. Our beauty, our purpose and our expansion is forged in the fire of our difficulties.
