When Mary wept at the feet of the Savior, mourning Lazaru's death, how did Christ react? Did he say, 'stop being drmatic. I would fix it if you would just calm down and listen to me"?
Jon 11:35: Jesus wept.
Surely if God wants me to be a model, he wants me to be famous.
"One of the most shocking findings of my work was the idea tat the most compassionate people I have interviewed over the last thirteen years were also the absolutely most boundaried... Boundary is simply what's okay and what's not okay. What i think we do is we don't set boundaries. We let people do things that are not okay or get away with bheaivors that are not okay, and then we're just resentful and hateful. Me? I'd rather be loving an dgenerous and very straight forward with what's ok and what's not okay." - Brene Brown

I considered myself faithful when I ended relationships when I discovered that they were actually complex humans with stories more complicated than what I thought were supposed to fill the pages of good, faithful priesthood holders' tales.

It may be that when we no longer know what to do
we have come our real work,
and that when we no longer know which way to go
we have come to our real journey.
The mind that is not baffled is not employed.
The impeded stream is the one that sings.
– Wendell Berry
