I know this is true because I am suddenly very tired. A wave of fatigue that is undeniable and almost unbearable crashes over me whenever I touch onto the truth with my words.The weight that settles into my chest dares me to go forward, to push through and into the deepest and sometimes darkest part of emotion.

I wrote this quote out after meeting a person who, well, didn’t think like me about the value of people with different abilities or disabilities and, as always, I was surprised.

I share it again today as a reminder to myself and also as a confession as to why this “writer’s life” is beautiful, hard and important, all at once.
