Maybe my emptiness creates a space for you
and your emptiness creates a space for me.
We are each empty for a reason...
to fill one another.

"Darling, you feel heavy
because you are too full of truth.

Open your mouth more.
Let the truth exist somewhere other than inside your body."

"Kill
The part of yourself
That still wants
To save someone
After they walked away
While you were drowning."

Everyone needs someone to hope for them.
Be real with yourself. If you can't hope for someone, then find someone else who can. It may save a life. It's one of the few things that will.

There is no best version of yourself: only incrementally better versions.
Take a leap of faith.
Believe in your potential to unlock the next version of yourself.
Repeat.
Repeat.
Repeat.

They say that everyone is doing the best they can given their circumstances.
But I think it's deeper than that.
I believe that everyone is doing the only thing they can.
So carry a light heart if you're able to.  Nothing else makes sense.

Beware of one who continually says that you can't make up your mind when you know yourself to be decisive for their criticism is a cover.  When they say "you can't decide," they actually mean "you don't agree with me."

You look at me and smile with the same intensity that you used with the last guy and the next guy and the next one.  it's very intense.

But it's not special when you use the same reaction with everyone. The uniformity turns your smoldering into the face of a clerk at the counter of a DMV.

I'm just a number. You process me and send me on my way. I drive away with a new identification, a new identity. And my photo looks like all the others.

It’s a surreal experience being at the funeral of someone you’ve known and loved your whole life. I’m very grateful to have met others who knew him throughout the various stages of his life. And with each new person I met, I saw him through their eyes. I saw a piece of his life in them.
And it made me realize that he must have been inside of us all along. That we must each be carrying pieces of one another. You just don’t notice it until there’s nowhere else to find them.

By allowing so much suffering,
the Lord lowers the specificity of his tests
which no longer target the faithful
so much as the masochistic.
