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
