Often a lack provides opportunity for another area of our lives to be filled.

You asked -

How were you able to rise above your trauma and achieve new growth?

That is a good question.

I think we often don’t know the resources we have to draw upon until we simply have to do it.

At least for me. I think it was realizing how serious the moment was. How my whole life could be upended and also understanding that there was fundamentally nothing truly wrong in my relationship.

I suppose in the end love enabled my heart and mind to do a good work. Lots of communication. Lots of sharing my perspectives about unconditional love. I could see past the temporary cruelty and understand it was a wounded human being acting out. The source turned out to be an early betrayal of love at a young age. Working through how now was different than then helped in the end I believe.

So how ? It was strength I found within my self, my core values, my understanding that however that situation actually turned out, I could go on and do whatever my life made necessary. Maybe it is a bit like knowing all roads lead somewhere, therefore it is not possible to ever be truly lost.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
