It takes balls to actually stand in your pain

It’s really hard to find meaning if you haven’t fully acknowledge what you’ve gone through 

Acceptance is simply acknowledging reality for what is

I think hiding is responsible for unimaginable amounts of suffering in the world

I’ve learned to find strength in my weaknesses and love in my vulnerability


Through his  words, Tim Lawrence helps people navigate life’s difficulties – grief, injury, depression, or loss – and learn to forge strength in the fire.
