Family

No matter how good and how much you love a relationship, inevitably it will change over time.

A close friend may move to another city, or a family member may pass away.

True freedom is being without anxiety about imperfection.

Just as I wish for a swift end to my suffering, I also pray for others to quickly recover from their pain 🙏

When you hesitate to forgive someone, I pray you find the compassionate gaze inside you, as we all face our personal demons 🌟
