Maybe if we all felt a little more understood we could release the anger, hate, and hopelessness before we turn to rash actions.
Take off the clothes, the makeup, the body type — and underneath it all — underneath all of that stuff — is a human. Under the skin, we are all flesh and blood with a miraculous beating heart, doing the best we can, every single day.
We all love to talk about ourselves- it makes us feel validated and important. We like to talk about things we’ve accomplished our exciting things we’re going to be doing.
Giving empathy requires more listening than replying. Your presence is more important than your insight.
It helps you connect more deeply to the people you love.

People come in and out of your life at just the right time, everything changes around you, you look back and see how much you have grown and everything keeps getting better or worse, but it never ever stays the same.
We go through life, thinking that we are alone in this world, without looking to the other sides, without thinking about the others around us, that every single one of them has their own problems, their own goals and stories.
I’ve spent all day looking at words and pictures on screens. And at the end of it, here I am in bed, wide-eyed and staring into the dark wondering why I feel so alone.
We have all experienced the sharp pain of a pre-mature goodbye.
