As my friend and colleague Glenn Harold says, if most people knew just how much others have really been through, cruelty would vanish overnight.
It’s ok to say the 3 words. Personally I say them every day. It make us human. There’s so much power and freedom in “I don’t know” It’s not weakness and it’s not ignorance. It’s just “I don’t know” Try it. As in… “I don’t know how I’ll overcome my current problems. (But I know I WILL)” “I don’t know when I’ll meet my true love. (But I know I WILL)”
