“Losing a parent is not like having your house bombed or being set upon by a crazed mob. It’s worse. It’s not over in one terrible moment, and the injuries do not heal as quickly as a bruise or a wound. But what happens to children whose worst fear is realized – and that they discover that they are still standing?”
I got chills after reading this quote because it suddenly became so clear that if and when the ‘worst fear’ happens it means that there is NOTHING that can scare you…for good (no fear of failure) or bad (no fear of consequences). Yeow.
