Those old ones knew a thing or two


There was no recovering them now.

You could grieve endlessly for the loss of time and for the damage done therein. For the dead, and for your own lost self.

But what the wisdom of the ages says is that we do well not to grieve on and on. And those old ones knew a thing or two and had some truth to tell, Inman said, for you can grieve your heart out and in the end you are still where you were.

All your grief hasn’t changed a thing. What you have lost will not be returned to you. It will always be lost. You’re left with only your scars to mark the void.

All you can choose to do is go on or not. But if you go on, it’s knowing you carry your scars with you.

-Cold Mountain

Thank you to my new friend James for showing me this quote! He was thinking about the Day of Emotional Rescue Yoga when he sent this to me. 🙂
