Stoicism isn’t always our best friend, especially if we don’t face the griz and embrace the hairy bastard. My parents rewarded me for being their little soldier. That cost. Boy can I relate. However, the grace of real tears, the release of genuine emotion takes more courage than holding fast in many cases. Bravo. And love to you this Christmas.
