"Nobody can intervene and make it right and nobody will. Nobody can take it back with silence or push it away with words. Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can't cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It's just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal... The healing, the genuine healing, the actual real deal down-on-your-knees-in-the-mud-change is entirely and absolutely up to you."

- Cheryl Strayed, from her Dear Sugar column, "How You Get Unstuck"
{Warning: if you read the entire "How You Get Unstuck" column, you will cry. You will ugly cry, in fact. It will break your heart and crack it open wide with love all at once. You've been warned.}
