Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can’t cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It’s just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal.

Princess Diana and Elton John at the funeral of their friend, Gianni Versace, in July of 1997.
After a falling out Diana refused to speak to Elton John. According to him it was at the funeral where they patched things up. She had come alone and gone up to the pew he was sitting in and asked, “Is it okay if I sit next to you?” She comforted him as he cried and they started talking again. Elton says he is so grateful because had they not been reconciled when she died a month later he would have never forgiven himself.
