Stay Soft Print
If you find yourself in a hard place
The most important thing you’ve got to do is stay soft.
This might not seem like much of a task if you have never been broken open or hollowed out or brought completely to your knees for the first time or for what feels like it’s got to be the last time.
But if you have found yourself in one or two or all of those states of disarray then you know how hard it is to stay soft when life presses itself cold and hard against you.
It can make you want to be harder than the hard things.
And so you have to fight to stay soft, in the face of all that, because soft is the way home. Because soft is actually the strongest thing. You have to wake up every day and choose a soft heart, an open heart, even after it’s been broken. You have to choose hope. You have to keep choosing.
