compare







you cannot compare loss.

I have seen people try.

"those people only lost their guitars"

"those people only lost their homes"

"those people only lost their car"

"those people only lost a job"

"those people only lost their life savings"

"those people only lost...."


there is no "only lost..." when it comes to loss. each loss is personal. each loss is felt by someone. each someone matters.

I believe we have trouble appreciating others losses when we have not experienced loss ourselves. I have learned to hold it all loosely so I can surrender with peace in my heart. The hardest one so far was my freedom. I now see freedom was an idol to me. Sigh!
