fire

Quote from Tuesday's with Morrie

Quote:
“It’s not just other people we need to forgive; we also need to forgive ourselves… Yes. For all the things we didn’t do. All the things we should have done. You can’t get stuck on the regrets of what should have happened. That doesn’t help you when you get to where I am.”

TL reflection:
I feel like every time I get hurt, I lose a part of myself. I believe we all do. As everyone grows older and encounter more negative experiences, they lose a part of themselves. The pain hurts soo bad some times, that we understand that we cannot only blame the other person, but also ourselves. We blame ourselves for being soo vulnerable. I constantly find myself wanting to be vulnerable again.
