You are not going in circles

You are making progress in a spiral. You do come back around to where you were at the start, since recovery and healing take time, but every time you come back around to that point you’re a little higher up because you’ve got more experience, more knowledge, and more strength.

You ARE making progress

I really needed to read this!!

“He asked his uncle whether or not he would get into heaven if he killed himself, & then did. What was already a heart-breaking story became even more overwhelming for everyone, cause it was two people, two children who didn’t need to die. It’s still a lot to take in, it’s still a lot to think about & make sense of. This is a tragedy, & how overwhelming it still is to me, today, years later & mostly unaffected, it wasn’t someone i knew that got killed, or that killed himself, but it’s still been difficult for me to really fully process.” - Jordan Dreyer

“Let him who cannot be alone beware of community… Let him who is not in community beware of being alone… Each by itself has profound perils and pitfalls. One who wants fellowship without solitude plunges into the void of words and feelings, and the one who seeks solitude without fellowship perishes in the abyss of vanity, self-infatuation and despair.”

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together: The Classic Exploration of Faith in Community

Just bought my La Dispute ticket for June - so excited!

just had a good long cry over this song, for the lost friendships, stupid resentments, the hurt and anger and sadness that sometimes become overwhelming.

but you can’t stay angry forever…or so i’m told. 

and i guess it’s the things that i don’t say.

Tonight: Arabic homework and Grouplove.
