The polarity of life showed itself today. I celebrated the news of a new life, shared by a friend, and then an hour later, my heart was breaking in disappointment for the dissolution of a marital union.
On one hand, my heart was overflowing with joy for this new life that will grace us in 2019 (I am excited to be a Tia!) and, on the other hand, my heart cracked open when a different friend shared that she would be flying solo soon.
I firmly believe that one’s story is theirs to tell, so I never share with any third party, mutually known or not, any news shared with me by someone else. So I hold onto this dichotomous situation, balancing between the two and offering my support to each in the way I feel they need.
