Today I had interactions with multiple people who have been experiencing pain in ways that I didn't know existed:
- Losing a child from a medical complication I'd never heard of,
- Feeling shamed for challenges with their body that I didn't realize were possible,
- Suffering in loneliness because of a loss I didn't know about.
I was reminded of the hidden battles many of us are fighting every day. And I re-committed myself to offering more grace & less judgement.
Whatever you are struggling with today... I want to be a person who hurts along with you. You are so loved. And you are not alone.
