Oh, to love the broken…

To love someone is not first of all to do things for them, but to reveal to them their beauty and value, to say to them through your attitude: “You are beautiful. You are important. I trust you. You can trust yourself.” We all know that we can do things for others and in the process crush them, making them feel they are incapable of doing things themselves. To love someone is to reveal to them their capacities for life, the light that is shining in them.
