When you want someone to find and care for your deepest hurt, without expectation, find those who are hurting and care for them without thought of yourself, even if they can’t return the favor. This is not a solution, but it will change the context of the whole world, including the world of your hurt. Do this continually, and because there was a piece of you in each of them, your wish is granted.
