I had one of those days yesterday. One of those days where the sadness of the world seems to be weighing down on me. I expect you have them too.

On these days I wish I could turn off my beautiful gift for empathy. Sometimes I don’t want to feel everything so deeply. Sometimes I don’t want to hold the pain of others within me. Sometimes my own pain is more than enough.

I have to be happy with my contribution, authentically given.

And most days I am. But on the heavy days, the days that weigh on me, it just isn’t enough.
