Elizabeth Kubler Ross with Mother Theresa. I love this powerful quote. These are words to live by: It is not the end of the physical body that should worry us. Rather, our concern must be to live while we're alive - to release our inner selves from the spiritual death that comes with living behind a facade designed to conform to external definitions of who and what we are.

Who we are and how we engage with the world are much stronger predictors of how our children will do than what we know about parenting. If we want to teach our chilldren to dare greatly in this “never enough” culture, the question isn’t so much “Are you parenting the right way?” as it is: “Are you the adult that you want your child to grow up to be?”.
"Those who have the strength and the love to sit with a dying patient in the silence that goes beyond words will know that this moment is neither frightening nor painful, but a peaceful cessation of the functioning of the body." - Elisabeth Kubler-Ross #quote #lifehack #elisabethkublerross
Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. It is the experience of understanding another person's condition from their perspective. As a sensitive person, I view empathy and sensitivity as the glue that holds together my relationships. This sensitivity can be viewed as a strength rather than a weakness.
