Thank you Gillian for this honest look and the beauty of love and empathy. We really do punish no one but ourselves when avoid people out of anger and angst about the past. I try to practice kindness and empathy all to time now. I had too many old days of anger and angst during my teens and 20s. Now I realize that all it did was make me miss things because I was too busy hating everything.
Your blog gives us all the reason that our hearts and love can heal us, all we have to do listen and let in our minds and bodies. As you write, we will find our lives much better and fun if are willing to love and empathize with others. Only then can we find anything approaching peace or happiness. 😁❤️
