Of course I'll hurt you.
Of course you'll hurt me.
Of course we will hurt each other.

To become present, means accepting the risk of absence.
I was reminded today that I should not seek only good things in familial relationships, as Oprah Winfrey once said that some people in our big extended family should be loved from a distance.
And no matter how good we are in anticipating the hurt that may come because of these better-love-from-afar types of person, we will still get hurt once in a while. It’s ok. It means you’re experiencing life at its fullest.
May you be at peace with the world around you,
