The Ole Onion

“Being a Friend to a Griever” is an article from Bill Austin. This quote is worth sharing with my readers. “When we think about helping a griever with their many feelings, it is important to remember that talking about feelings is like peeling an onion. There are layers. Once you talk about one layer there is another beneath that, so it is is important to be able to talk about feelings more than one time.”

Another reminder…the source of these “many feelings” is a “broken heart.”


Quote of importance

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young,
compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant
of the weak and strong. Because someday in life you will have been all
of these. -George Washington Carver, scientist (1864-1943)
