The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things…The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.
This would describe my life surprisingly well right now. I am simultaneously experiencing some of the best, most delicious things (relationships, events etc.) I have ever experienced (yes, I know, nearly seventeen years is a vast pool of experience from which to draw), yet at the same time, I am going through some of the most frustrating, bewildering things of my life so far. Praise God I have the good ones to save my very circumstantial emotions from total despair.
