There comes a time when you have to realize that we are all dealing with the same shit.
We all deal with it differently but no one lives outside the madness.
No one is stronger than you or better than you, they are just dealing it with it differently.
Don't get me wrong– it's hard to believe this– but it's true.
The understanding that comes from another person's struggle, is the most important glue that binds the community. Taking a moment and putting yourself in other people's shoes creates an enormous amount of good energy that can't be ignored.
It's hard not to judge people based on their actions but it's important to see that no single action defines who we are as a person. No one is consistently perfect and that's okay.
Letting people make mistakes and accepting them for what they have done, is the most vulnerable and beautiful thing.
