They say, “Yes you will suffer.”
But they don’t say, “But you will also experience the deepest of joys. You will experience the births and deaths of the greatest of loves. And the sun warming the blood under your skin after the coldest of winter. And the rain against your window will sing you to a peaceful sleep. And you will awaken some mornings in the arms of someone who will love you most of all. There will be moments when your soul will gleam so beautifully, even the universe will bask in your happiness. Yes, you will suffer. But you will be happy beyond your wildest dreams. And that will make every second of the suffering worth it.”
They should say that. Because it is that balance that makes us beautifully and softly human.
