Day 7 of “21 Beautiful Days Before Turning 21”

I don’t believe it when they say you can’t make people happy when you are unhappy. I can only think of a paradox to be rational: it’s when you’re unhappy that you are capable of making yourself an instrument of happiness. Sometimes, no matter how deeply wounded you are, your pieces start to come together when you use your pain to feel other people’s pain-this is the best thing about empathy, you become strong and less alone sharing yourself and helping out anyone. The sense of protecting and understanding a fellow being is a favor you do for yourself as well for you are who you care about. -Yours truly
