Often the most vulnerable and loving people we know were not born as such. They were the ones that struggled, fought and lost and knew defeat intimately. They crawled their way out of the darkness and the depths of despair knowing deeply what it is like to have hurt and suffered. Through these tests, these individuals grasp so strongly compassion, empathy, understanding, and unconditional love.
When one goes through hell, the desire and commitment to lead others out of this torture when they face it is so strong and ingrained, that It becomes only natural for those seasoned individuals who’ve walked the line to offer any support for the suffering, for they once battled in the furnace alone.
