Life has ways of different ways of showing you it’s teeth. Sometimes it isn’t even something that has happened to you that allows you feel it’s bite.
When things like that happen, your empathy is one of the only things you have, even when the pain is so great it hurts like your own. The need to comfort and love those around you is what takes over.
When confusion is sweeping about all around like stormy seas, you have to try to be the beacon of the lighthouse.
