No words can make this piece better. We can take good from any situation – most of it, about discovering self. There is no blame, pointed fingers, no accusations, no judgments, but what is given, use it as nourishment. Phoenix or just ashes. It is not just relationships, but those are most impactful. Do you keep your kindness, do you stick with your values, do you honor your own emotions. That last part we often get wrong, we expect a return, but what truly matters is our ability to experience the spectrum of the human condition, and that opens the mind to possibilities beyond what we can see if we have never experienced it. It is phenomenal and liberating — if you invest enough, you discover the silent suffering of so many, and it changes you in profound ways. Thank you. This was wonderfully well written.
