No One is Everything
Many of us expect everyone to be everything. We tend to write people off when they don't live up to these unrealistic expectations. However, no one is meant to be everything; we're meant to be who we are, the good and the bad. Let people disappoint you, or let them prove themselves to you, because then at least you are aware of their place in your life.
As we confront the painful times in our lives, it is crucial to remember these moments are essential to the grieving process. Deteriorating on the inside may leave us with no hope, but hope may be the only true aid to working through depression. If we fail to acknowledge our feelings of despair, we may never reach the final stage of the grief - acceptance.
