Gratefulness in the Pain
The pain is indescribable, so I won’t even try to use the right word. It isn’t just a feeling. It’s a whole experience. That experience might be short-lived. It could be an experience like mine that has lasted over nine years. Maybe for you it has been even longer.
When you get through it; and I do mean when. No that you are better for it. That pain that you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy, it has transformed you into that strong and beautiful person you are today.
You are better for it.
You think things through more thoroughly; you are guided by experience.
You are more empathetic to what others might be going through; you’ve been there.
You are more patient and kind; you remember how you wish you had been treated.
You are better for your friends and loved ones; but most importantly, you are better for you.
“Sometimes it’s not about getting back to that person you used to be. Maybe it’s about stepping into that person that you were created to be.“
Somehow, someday, you are able to feel grateful for it all. You will finally appreciate who you’ve become and how far you’ve come.
That my dear, is called breakthrough.
