Storms

Sometimes it's just about staying strong through the things that make you fall to your knees with despair. Sometimes that strength looks like tears. Sometimes it looks like laughter. It's about knowing you can get through the difficult things and that joy will come. It's about finding whatever port you can in the storm, seeking whatever shelter is available and riding it out. Then, it's about having compassion for those who are still in the middle of their own storms. It's about providing that shelter for them if you can and if you can't, it's about giving what you can and standing beside them as their storm rages reminding them that it will not always hurt this bad, it will not always be this painful, but while it is, you are there. Always.

It's so true. Sometimes we really need to have more compassion for people who are going through things. So often we have no idea what it's like for them.

Great post! We all have times in our lives when we just need to hold on to something and wait on the storm to pass. There's always a brighter day ahead.
