Pretty Pictures

I'm Danielle. I take pictures. Sometimes they're pretty.
A collage I created a few years ago, after a particularly difficult breakup. It says: (Heart) break allows light, empathy, gratitude to shine through.
I’m posting this now in honor of Kayla, who shared her divorce story so eloquently and beautifully today.
For Kayla and anyone else going through a difficult breakup, separation, divorce, or other heartbreak: I truly believe that suffering a / break / allows the light to get through.
And not just because Rumi said so.
Vulnerability, and being open to/aware of loss, allows us empathize with other people’s suffering. Great or small. 
If that’s the only good thing that comes from heartbreak. Then I still value it.
