That what it feels many people have as of right now... an empty space in their minds and hearts which they are aching to fill with something that comforts them. Sadly, they seem to think death will fill the void.
Love is the only thing which can fill the void which they feel. Love is the only thing they need right now... they do not need hurtful words being they hurt themselves enough mentally. No matter how truthful the painful words may seem to the speakers and listeners, it does not mean it should be done so heartlessly.
I think everyone should just take them time to take a deep breath and say "How would I feel if I were this person in this situation?" and "How would I feel if someone said something like '____' to me?" and if, on the last one, if it makes you feel bad think also "How can I keep the message of my words without making it seem so hurtful toward these emotionally instable peoples?"
I know Sean must be going through so much as of right now... Being not too long ago he lost the older version of myself... his mother. The two were obviously close being she was the only parent there to finish raising him. One can only expect him to be in a confused state of mind, not knowing exactly what to do or say with himself now. I can only wish to be half as much assistance to him for a mother's voice as my older self was. I will say a prayer to the gods that his problems will work themselves out.
As for John, though I do not approve of what his actions were I cannot rebuke him for them... Because he was only doing what he felt he should do. And he said many times he really did not feel as if he were Sean's father so one cannot truly hold himself accountable for the actions he took to sooth Sean's grievances. And even John's emotional stability was not exactly the greatest of things, being he felt as if he and George were growing apart as lovers.
Dear Yuka... Since coming here, I have become very fond of you. You remind me much of myself. My son needs a strong hearted woman such as you to keep him upon his feet. But, always bare in mind, Sean is in many ways like his father he can and will do things he thinks will make things better when it really just makes them worse. When it all comes down to it in the end, it takes doing the wrong thing for them to realize that the strength and stability they had been seeking had been right there with them all along. IN the 70's, JOhn had a "lost weekend" to make him realized how much he really loved me and needed me in his life. For Sean, it took an almost Oedipus-type scenerio from him to realize how much he needs and loves you.
I will now take this time to quote my future self:
"I have always tried to find something positive about everything even in bad situations... It is the only thing that keeps me going."
