a quote.

"We think that the point is to pass the test or overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don't really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It's just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy."


  1. Hmm. This is in complete contrast to most of my views...I see life as a series of tests that ultimately lead to one final conclusion. But the quote is interesting...because I can notice that in the times I let go of these views as the world fell apart and came back together, I was happy. Healed, even.

    Way to challenge my worldview, Ryan. :D


  2. It's a tough concept to accept. My pessimistic side says this is sad, it means that there will probably be more grief to follow the periods of happiness. But there is probably some peace to find in the fact that life will always have its ups and downs and still keep marching forward.
