Do you know who you are?
Do you understand what has happened to you?
Do you want to live this way?
Consider these questions, we ask them as a default after a trauma but consider when have you ever stopped and asked yourself.
“Trauma does not just happen to a few unlucky people; it is the bedrock of our psychology. Death and illness touch us all, but even the everyday sufferings of loneliness and fear are traumatic” – Mark Epstein M.D
The best way to deal with the trauma of everyday life is to know who you are, what you purpose in life and what you value deep in the core of your being.
Knowing these three things will allow you to develop personal resilience and the ability to vulnerable.
Growing up I was always different, choosing own my path and developing my own moral code, I thought I understood what I was about that was until I sat down and took the time to really examine the journey I have been on as a woman and how my values shape how I live in the world.
We live in a narcissistic world and generations’ of women are valuing themselves by how many likes their latest selfie has or the number of followers on Instagram or the number of friends they have on social media platforms like Facebook.
Because they don’t know how valuable they are to the world in real life, because they’ve never stopped to reflect on what they are about and their purpose in life. Some would say they value themselves in this way because they are ashamed of being average or unnoticed.
For me understanding what drives me helped me appreciate why I’ve made the decisions that led me here. It has also given me the courage to take on this business and create a space to empower women so that we can all be the best versions of ourselves.
