I was surprised and impressed when a friend of mine who suffers from mental illness who had been in hospital said to me, "Everyone has their story, I know that."
This opened my eyes to the reality that everyone suffers in this world and that no one is exempt from growth.
To see each person in a mental institution as a unique individual who is no less human than ourselves is quite a revelation.
Even those who are mentally ill and written off by society can teach us important lessons in life.
I am indebted to Virginia for her wise and gentle insights.
