All in Pain Journey

"We should always remember--To themselves, no one is just another person."
-Javan

Pain messes with acceptance. As do a lot of things. The most beautiful result of my pain and therapy journey has been the unabashed acceptance of myself. Today I can celebrate that. I struggled with this mightily, over decades.

This morning another jolt…We form our opinions whether they were famous or not. "They had everything. I'd love to have their problems. They were so selfish, they don't care about who is left behind." I've heard these and more. If you're human, then you're going to struggle. What causes me to struggle may be your superpower. What trips you up may not phase me. Or maybe we both can understand how deep the rabbit hole can go. Who can truly comprehend the demons of another? The journey of another?
