Life, at times, can be the most difficult thing to get a grasp on. I think that scientist have an easier time understanding particle physics than I do of understanding the things that happen in everyday life. The daily interactions with others can cause even the greatest of thinkers and scholars to scratch their heads and say, “What the heck was that about?” Sometimes, during these moments, we can miss the most basic needs of another – unfortunately often someone we care deeply about. A single word can cause pain to a cherished friend, and the damage that is done can be devastating. It is during these moments that a friendship can be made stronger or destroyed. Delicate handling of the wound is required – the salve of love applied to the wound of indifference. What is most important in these exchanges is that both parties learn to have a deeper and more profound understanding of each other.
