« It’s OK to not be OK. If your life has exploded into million little bits, you don’t need platitudes. You don’t need cheerleading. You don’t need to be told this all happened for a reason. You certainly don’t need to be told that you needed your pain in order to learn something about life. Some things cannot be fixed. They can only be carried on. »— Megan Devine https://www.refugeingrief.com
"The human soul doesn't want to be advised, fixed or saved. It simply wants to be witnessed... exactly as it is."- Parker Palmer
“One smile relieves a heart that grieves though deadly sad it be, and one hard look Can close the book that lovers love to see.”- Robert Graves
— John Green, The Fault in Our Stars.
"Grief does not change you, Hazel. It reveals you."
