Breathe through -

I was responding to a friend on her "breakthrough", and I typed "breathe through".

Perhaps they are the same, but breathe through sounds softer to me,  and spacious, whereas I realized the word breakthrough has rather a sharp edge to it.

I think of the chick pecking his or her way out of the egg, an image gently with us these lovely spring days.  Yes, there is a breakthrough with the crack and emergence, and there is also a breathing through, a connecting containment with expanse.
