If you called me with a broken heart or felt stuck in life...

I would talk to about forgiveness, grief, healing your heart and self-compassion

Love your broken heart: It’s how the Light gets in.

I overheard a “Dr.”, presumably a psychologist, asking people to sign up for her course on getting over breakups so they could “never have their heart broken again.” On the spiritual side of things, I read quotes like “no one can hurt you” which is a great example of...
