This quote is funny yet so true,however it definately make you empathetic to someone else having a hard time no matter what it may be. unless you're cold and heartless..then in that case, you really don't care at all. but that's okay :) i don't need fake people in my life. so good riddance :)
This makes me think of the Birthing From Within conception of labor and birth. It is rooted in the understanding that labor in unpredictable and that women need to feel comfortable adapting to it as it unfolds, in order to prevent birth trauma.
Took me a long, long time to come to terms with this. There are still some days I struggle with wanting to be everything for everyone, or anything for anyone. I may not be the juiciest peach, but I think I'm done apologizing for whoever or whatever I am.
