Truth Moment: I use to be against “community”. I did not enjoy group sessions, because I feared being humiliated if I shared my thoughts or feared leaving with the same feeling of “loneliness” after being in a crowd of people. From those past moments, I learned that I was allowing disappointment to keep me from connecting to, or finding, the “right people”. What I love about community now is that connections can be made over relatable and consistent stories. Sharing our truth with each other allows us to stay strong and overcome certain issues that we may not have been able to before. Every aspect of our lives does have a purpose. Whether that purpose is used for good or evil, you are the one that decides how your life will be an inspiration or a “bad example” to others.
My story is not just for me, but someone else. No, I did not get everything right, but there is someone looking to learn from my mistakes. Yes, I have made some good choices in the past that allowed me to live in peace now, but there is someone looking to be inspired by those moments. In the past, I admit that I despised certain parts of my journey, but now I realize that those parts were setting me up for redemption. My truth is that I overcame.
As always feel free to share your thoughts! What can we learn from your life? What do you have to share?
