this quote suggests that when faced with a difficult or challenging situation, such as the abyss, there is limited space for people to cope with it. When someone is already at the edge, there is less room for others to be there. In this scenario, the person at the edge becomes a protective barrier or support for others. It implies that when one person takes on the burdens and challenges of a situation, they become an essential part of the solution or support system for others.
I learned regret in the ruins of Tarbfhlaith. I regretted that ambition had ruled my heart instead of affection for my kin. And with the lesson of regret came the gratitude for having life still to move my lips and limbs, and to speak kind words to and embrace those I may not see again on this sweet-smelling earth. I learned that I cannot wait to love what is in my presence, for it or I may well be gone tomorrow. To some, such as Giannon, this lesson poisons the heart with bitterness. But such bitterness has no value and is, in fact, cowardly. For bitterness risks nothing.
