So, needing a little oomph to my spirit, I opened up one of my journals, the one in which I write my poems and meditation insights, and came across this lovely and inspiring advice received from the universe during a meditation:
When growth needs to occur in one person, it is an opportunity for the others involved to show their grace. Guilt and shame do not encourage growth but hinder it. We need to meet people where they are and love them ~ unconditionally.
