It’s hard sometimes to figure out how much choice we have in our suffering or grief.  Henri Nouwen, who knew what It meant to suffer, shares this encouragement:

“…..every time there are losses there are choices to be made. You choose to live your losses as passages to anger, blame, hatred, depression and resentment, or you choose to let these losses be passages to something new, something wider, and deeper.”
