“When times are really terrible, people often have thoughts of throwing in the towel and giving up. Indeed, you may feel so depressed that it seems as if there’s no way through. The newspaper keeps bring us strings of stories about people who have decided to take the final irreversible step…But unless the cosmos itself has decided to carry you off, it’s not time to be done, not time to throw in the towel, or the sponge or whatever you feel like throwing in, whether with a loud banshee scream or a pitiful whimper.
Instead, it is time to come once again to the altar of your competence, to claim the riches in yourself, to live the power of who you are, of who you’ve always been. It’s time to tease out the thread your soul has woven through your life. Crisis is a challenge to express your strengths at their highest arc, which is when you are also at your most beautiful.”
Daphne Rose Kingma, in “The Ten Things to Do When Your Life Falls Apart”
