No one’s pain is more important.
No one’s grief is more valuable.
It really doesn’t matter if their struggle is harder or easier than yours.
It matters not if the cards are stacked against you and someone else has better odds.
(I mean, it does from a social justice perspective and it certainly does impact the road to healing and the resources you’ll have access to that others won’t. Privilege IS real and important to acknowledge, but doesn’t change the point of this post)…
At the end of the day, I hope we all make it.
It’s not helpful to you or anyone else to make comparisons to other people’s problems or how you think it’s easier for someone else.
Life is hard.
We’re all walking each other home.
We’ll all encounter rock bottom moments and experiences that will take us out at the knees. It’s happening across the planet right now. Times have been tough before and they’ll be tough again.
You ALL matter.
What you’re facing matters.
What you’re feeling matters.
And what matters most is that we keep looking up at the horizon line to take one more step forward today, and we keep reaching out to the hands and hearts around us that are available to help us hold what’s happening in just the right ways.
I hope we all make it.
I’m rooting for you.
I’m here to help make the journey a little more doable.
You don’t have to do it alone. We were never meant to.
