are a life made of seasons.
do not apologise for
of your winter.
— be gentle (with yourself).
© Liezel Graham 2018.
It takes a great deal of courage to live transparently.
We are encouraged to put on a brave face, a happy face — think positive, pray more, hand it to God.
But sometimes, these things do not lift the burden.
And, this is ok.
Learn to be gentle with yourself and the season you are in.
Learn to be gentle with others and the season they are in.
Sometimes, a kind word and quiet companship are more powerful and more healing than (well-meant) advice.
