Three Day Quote Challenge - Day One

I have been challenged by Edwina's Episodes and I accept.

“We have all hurt someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident. We have all loved someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident. It is an intrinsic human trait, and a deep responsibility, I think, to be an organ and a blade. But, learning to forgive ourselves and others because we have not chosen wisely is what makes us most human. We make horrible mistakes. It’s how we learn. We breathe love. It’s how we learn. And it is inevitable.” Nayyirah Waheed



This.

This is what I need to read to myself.

To say out loud.

To repeat.

To whisper.

A mantra.

To keep the demons at bay.

The soul intact.

The reality of this, my, human existence.

Human.

We are.

And here is where we will learn the greatest lessons.
