I mourn someone I never knew

How do you grieve someone you never knew? I never met him but I will always love him. How do you grieve somebody that you never knew? It’s the strangest thing; I saw him and I needed him. He wouldn’t stay. He passed away without my knowing. And it destroyed me. We were bonded in [...]

Judge or Accept

We are all judgmental in some way and if somebody says that they do not judge others, they are not being honest with themselves.
