Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.
Three things you cannot recover in life, the word, moment, time so choose, embrace and never waste time arguing over things that will not matter in the last 5 minutes of your life. Always remember this. It's not worth it to waste your life angry.
love is choosing to serve someone in spite of their filthy heart. love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. love is hard. love is pain and sacrifice, it's seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship.
