The truth that many people never understand, until it is too late, is that the more you try and avoid suffering, the more you suffer because smaller and more insignificant things begin to torture you in proportion of your fear of being hurt.  
                                                                ~Thomas Merton

I remember a time when I thought spending a good amount of time in my bed crying it out was a sign of weakness.  I am thankful that I know better now.  

Today I am thankful for tears and the healing they bring.
