It’s Not in Vain. Your Experience Counts.
Someone once asked me, “How can you possibly say that the abuse you suffered had a purpose?” I had to take a slow breath and respond softly, “The abuse didn’t have a purpose …. My survival did. There’s a difference. When I say that nothing is in vain I’m implying that in anything we overcome in life we can find a seed of hope, a place of choice – that choice is to cower or challenge. Learn and grow, or give up. There is power and purpose to learning and growing through our experiences. So, no – the abuse isn’t the purpose …. My choosing to overcome the effects of it is.”
She paused for a moment and then, through brimming tears whispered, “I want to know what that feels like.”
