Some illnesses are not visible… If you don’t understand… Don’t judge, those who are struggling…

if those who are struggling leap, if they decide to be honest about their illness and  they are courageous enough to tell the truth… Show them love and compassion.

Today’s experience made me sit and consider life at its deepest level. I understand the concept of hiding the severity of your illness, the concept of protecting yourself and those you love from the complex and horrific consequences that honesty brings…

what I have learnt is this; understanding comes from experience, and a willingness to sit and offer compassion because you are courageous enough to know what it takes to speak up… But the judgment and consequences are often life changing… Nothing I write here will ever explain the way it feels to be abandoned because you’ve been brave enough to be honest…

I was reminded today of the courage it takes… And to offer quiet reassurance that it’s ok to be broken, that people will understand if they can reflect upon their own brokenness… We are in the end.. Simply human🙏🏼💕
