Beyond Myself

Grief seems all- consuming. But, eventually, you become far enough removed from your crisis that you are able to hear the people around you and that life is happening to them too.  Now, when I ask someone how they are, I really want to know.  And when they answer I'm able to hear and not compare to my own pain. My response is sympathy and not my story.
