Is it possible for someone to be truly overflowing with love and pain simultaneously?

My love for Zev is deep. And my compassion for the suffering of others is huge. The love I feel and show to those close to me seems different than it did a year ago. My tears are a reflection of the great love and the great sorrow I feel, no longer having my little girl in my arms. The despair and the constant ache within is excruciatingly sharp, and at times it is but a dull hum.

I’ve shared before of how love and grief are connected. How closely linked are joy and sorrow. They are inextricably tied together. Therefore, I suppose it is not a stretch for me to feel so full of pain and so full of love at once. Yet, it is foreign to me… it feels like swimming in mud.
