“Sometimes people are judgemental of those who have overcome great tragedy.
They say things like:
‘Oh you must have run over a China Man in a past life’ or ‘I wonder what you did to attract that!’
The trouble with phrases like this is, they portray adversity as either punishment or something to be ashamed off.
Both are incorrect.
Those who overcome adversity and those who are dealing with it right now deserve great respect and honour.
They are passing through new modules in their lives on the way to becoming greater, stronger, more compassionate and empathic versions of themselves.
The Gurus, the Saints, the Holy ones and the Wise are all those who have overcome great obstacles and challenges in life.
If you’re walking a hard path right now, take courage from these words:
You are the light we need most in this world. What you learn from this will create paths for others and grow new places in you that will serve you and this planet for life.
If you know someone going through a difficult, challenging time right now, give them the honour and respect they deserve and most need.
Words can wound or empower, make sure to check what you’re saying to others and yourself.
You are as valid and deserving as anyone else who needs your support and encouragement.
Speak well to and of others and the next time you see someone with a heavy load, embrace them, encourage them.
Remember you’re witnessing the most crucial act on this planet at its most vulnerable – Survival.”
