Some People, They Can’t…

“Some people, they can’t just move on, you know, mourn and cry and be done with it. Or at least seem to be. But for me… I don’t know. I didn’t want to fix it, to forget. It wasn’t something that was broken. It’s just…something that happened. And like that hole, I’m just finding ways, every day, of working around it. Respecting and remembering and getting on at the same time. ” ―Sarah Dessen

*In Memory Of My Grandfather…Великою людиною дійсно ніколи не може бути втрачено або забуто- A great man can never truly be lost or forgotten.*


What To Say To A Loved One Who Suffers With Depression

What To Say To A Loved One Who Suffers With Depression

“What do you have to be depressed about?!” would be high on the list of things NOT to say. Yes, occasional depression is normal, but anything lasting longer than two weeks is not. Be gentle and take people seriously when they trust you enough to share their thoughts regarding depression. Too many people die because no one took them seriously, or because “friends” and “loved ones” abandoned them completely.

Beautiful & Hon…

Beautiful & Honest

“Your beloved and your friends were once strangers. Somehow at a particular time, they came from the distance toward your life. Their arrival seemed so accidental and contingent. Now your life is unimaginable without them. Similarly, your identity and vision are composed of a certain constellation of ideas and feelings that surfaced from the depths of the distance within you. To lose these now would be to lose yourself.”  ―John O’Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom
