Star & LG,

Star, thanks for sharing. Though I'm an ocean away, those words carry strength and the support option of a good counselor to guide you through this challenge is worth their weight in gold.

You are also quite right about how these experiences change our POVs. We learn not to be as selfish and show more care, expand our need to have empathy in our lives.

LG, you have a beautiful heart and am very sorry for what you are experiencing. Still you do have a load of support in many places around this globe.

Just know we you are in our hearts as well. smile
