I recently had an interview with Janie Terrazas from The Sacral Circle in which I discussed the background of my books and the impact that abuse and loss had on me in my life journey. Life can be harsh and it can also be beautiful. I believe that in order to deal with the hard times, we have to develop an attitude of gratitude and perseverance.
When I was afflicted by the pain and torment of my past, it seemed like I would never be able to heal. For years I wondered if healing was even possible. It seemed like a mountain that I couldn’t climb…as if my pain was too great to even fathom the ability to overcome it.
Had I known that healing truly was possible, I would have had more hope. My faith was low, my hope even lower. I asked numerous people who knew of my circumstance if I could ever come out victorious from my situation. The most hopeful response I received was “maybe.”
When you’re in the depths of despair for years, surrounded by very few people who are supportive, “maybe” isn’t a good answer. The word “maybe” caused my despair to deepen. But by the magic of God’s healing, I eventually overcame my situation.
This is a video I created about what I learned regarding healing. It’s not as elusive as it seems. In fact, it is possible to heal from the type of trauma I endured. If you’re in a period of suffering, please take a moment to watch my video. And know that you, too, can achieve happiness.
