Saw (and fell in love with) this post today on Coffee Stained Cashmere's Tumblr. So I decided that I would share it with you.

So often we try to make other people feel better by minimizing their pain, by telling them that it will get better (which it will) or that there are worse things in the world (which there are). But that’s not what I actually needed. What I actually needed was for someone to tell me that it hurt because it mattered. I have found this very useful to think about over the years, and I find that it is a lot easier and more bearable to be sad when you aren’t constantly berating yourself for being sad.

John Green 

If you felt pain through a difficult experience: it means that it mattered. 
And that's OKAY to care about something. 
It's okay to let things matter.
