Grief is a funny thing.
So is disappointment.
When someone is hurting to the point that they don’t feel they can go on… or make a plan on how to stop the pain by ending it themselves… Don’t they become the catalyst for the pain of countless others?
Is there, truly, a light at the end of the tunnel? Or do you think there’s a tunnel at the end of the light?
While you are considering that… I’ll ponder this:
Hope is fragile. Hope in someone who is going through a similar tunnel is a powerful thing.
Hey… Let’s follow that through.
Knowing that there are others in the tunnel with you may scare you… it also may make you stronger.
Tunnels are dark places. Places where a select few get to pull the weigh of the masses through the dark places.
When the leader decides to stop going through the darkness… many fall. Many are lost. Many lose hope.
Hope is a fragile thing.
Leadership an awesome, difficult and painful responsibility.
Like I said… I’m not sure how to feel but I do know one thing… There is wisdom in the insightfully simple words of Jimmy Kimmel:
“If you are sad… tell someone.”
