Stay present even in the mud

“Even when we are in the thick muddiness of our pain, despair, and tenderness, we can grow through it as long as we are alive and present enough to bear witness.” ~Alex Elle

My first inclination in the muddy patches of life is to disconnect and avoid feeling as much as I can, but the only path to growth is through staying present in those times and bearing witness to the pain, despair, and struggle.
