I read this amazing article today that’s a few years old, but right on time for where I am. I’m going to link the whole article, but this poem she quotes within the post really struck a chord with me.
I walked a mile with Pleasure; she chatted all the way.
And left me none the wiser with all she had to say.
I walked a mile with Sorrow, and ne’er a word said she,
But oh, the things I learned from her, when Sorrow walked with me.
Really, the whole post is just excellent. I’ve read it a few times, and every time I find myself nodding along with one part or another. Thank you, Kendra, for your words!
