We will all have hurts in our lives.
Heart pain will bend your knees
Loved ones will die.
Loved ones will disappoint us.
Hate us at times.
Abuse us verbally, mentally and sometimes physically.
The older we get the more disappointments we will face.
We get sicker and poorer.
We get lonely and depressed.
But hold on tight.
There is a light at the end of most tunnels of darkness.
And even if there is not a tunnel to be had.
Then pull yourself up by your boot straps.
Try to live with grace.
With dignity
Through whatever disappointments and doubts
Bow your back.
It's hard to be stoic all the time.
And that's ok.
Walk your path with assurance.
You got this.
