I do not welcome you into my home because of WHAT you are to my home. I welcome you because of WHO you are to me.
If you fail at raising me out of my sadness, then you too will be sad. That will make me sadder. I choose and own my sadness right now because I believe it is where I am supposed to be, to be true to my Self. It is not despair. It is widening, not deepening.
