How do you hope to help another person up if you've never fallen down yourself?
It is out of our own struggles that we attain the insight we need to help ourselves up when we've fallen. It is from battling our own demons that we discover our own grace in reaching back to help another.
We can't understand any of this if we don't risk. If we don't do what feels scary, if we don't push ourselves to reach beyond what our fear tells us is safe.
