Disappointment, loss, and trauma are inevitable elements of any life on earth. Some of these pains are caused by others. Some are caused by circumstance or natural occurrences. Sometimes it is our own choices that bring about life’s difficulties.
But whatever the source of grief or the nature of the trauma experienced, overcoming these events will take a powerful inner strength. Without this strength, grief can consume you and take away any ambition to continue on. Trauma can leave the deepest wounds not on the body but on the heart and leave you emotionally limping for the rest of your days. The necessary inner strength to overcome these things results from knowing who you are beyond the events and difficulties of this life.
