Withdrawing the projection of the unlived life
Perhaps the kindest thing we can offer a friend in pain is to sit in the darkness with them—removing the burden that they change, feel better, or heal in order to stay close.
As we weave a home for our own unmet sadness, disappointment, and despair, we withdraw the projection of the unlived life upon the environment around us.
It is only then that we can truly love ourselves and others.
