I feel strange

I don’t want to talk to anyone, however I don’t want to be alone. So I guess I just want someone to sit with me and not find it weird I’m not interested in conversing. #wut

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Prayer of St. Francis (via ayearningsigh)

Being a full human being has a lot to do with suffering.

BJ Miller, executive director of the Zen Hospice Project at the UCSF Medical Center

A triple amputee, this doctor’s story is one to be read and admired as he brings new approaches to the palliative care field.
