It’s amazing what we can withstand ( go through, endure) to get where we need to be!! I embrace my past, now that I have learned it was for a reason. At the time it was not so easy to embrace! Now that it is over and in the past all I can hope is that others may be touched in some way by my experiences and lessons! So you see, your words are a validation for me, sent from God! I thank you!
We all need encouragement and mine comes in the form of words from others who have been where I was, and survived, NO, thrived! So I thank you!
I am sorry you had to experience abuse at the hands of a loved one. None of us should have to go through that! But I am encouraged by your healing! It is now our job to help others understand, heal, and move on. Not only the ones who have been through it, but the ones who are in it.
So you see, you and I, we know that there IS a light at the end of the tunnel and that light shines brighter than anything we could ever imagine! And most definitely brighter than what we had in the past !
Let us always remain open to the lessons in life. I’ve said it before and will say it many times again……He never said it would be easy!
Peace and Love~Christine
