AS SEEN ON

I was thinking about all the remarkable people who have confided in me and trusted me to hear their stories. And I get a little overwhelmed with emotion by it all.

So many heart-wrenching stories….

Stories of marital abuse, family abuse, narcissism, still births and lost children, sickness, rape and lots and lots of death. When I think about all these stories, you could be easily led down a path of despair and foreboding for these aren’t just stories, these are glimpses into the horrors and pain that come with being human. These could easily be stories from our worst nightmares brought to life.

But no…. I don’t see this at all.

What I see is strength and courage.

These amazing people LIVED through these things and came out the other side stronger. They made the courageous choice to LIVE in spite of all that has happened to them and are making an even braver decision to own the story and share it.

The amount of admiration I have for these amazing souls fills me with so many emotions its hard to describe them all at once. Compassion, joy, heartache and hope. So much hope.

These beautiful people have experienced darkness first hand and have deliberately turned that darkness into light. Into something beautiful that gives others hope and inspiration.

And for that… I admire the fuckin’ hell out of them.
