"When examining the question of power in situations of conflict, ask; Who decides? Who pays? Who wins"

Ideas

1

The self too is a collection of individuals.
People often want to say, because I know this about you, therefore I can assume that you are a particular person.

But in reality, who we are hour by hour, situation by situation differs, we have multiple different selves.

To love oneself, is therefore, to love all the different versions of yourself. And to grow oneself, is to understand that different versions of oneself have different ways to improve.

Life can often be filled with different sufferings, but also a great range of tools to help with that suffering.
However, none of us are promised or just given things that will lessen our suffering.

So when we do find these tools and opportunities, uplift & appreciate them.

Mourning should also be about expressing gratitude for the gift of carrying the memory of someone who isn't here anymore, as well as appreciating & moving forward with everything that we learnt from them.
