On pain faced by loved ones (TGP Musing 9)

Standard

The Gratitude Project – Musing 9

It has taken a lot of soul searching to get to this point in my life.

Most importantly it has required an often sobering self-critique of masculinity’s innate need for power and control…

I finally know now, and am grateful for the knowledge, that no matter how hard I try I cannot save my loved ones from the inevitability of life’s myriad stresses and traumas.

But I have always known, and am far more grateful for the knowledge, that the love we share is infinitely more powerful and enduring than the pain we will steel through.

(Good wine, smashing food, and the teachings of the green goddess definitely help along the way.)
