Life doesn’t always treat us kindly. Loved ones pass away, illness strikes, marriages end or relationships fall apart. Getting through these battles; climbing these mountains is painful and difficult and they happen to everyone. It reminds me of the old saying “dying is easy, everyone does it. It’s living that is hard.”
These dings and dents, cuts and bruises we experience as we live our lives is what makes us who we are. It’s the building blocks of how we go forth and live our lives in the future. Do we become absorbed in self-pity and become bitter; hating life and all it has to offer, or do we become stronger with each and every barrier that we conquer?
I am not a psychologist or a counselor, but I have lived for more years than I care to admit and have had my share of failures both on a personal and a business level. Many times I’ve wondered if I would survive, if I would continue to “climb” or if I would just give up and sit down and die. Unless you have lived a charmed life, so have you.
Guess what… if you are reading this, you survived it. You beat dragon; fought off the Mongols pounding at your gate. Whatever euphemism you prefer is fine, but the point is… you and I are still standing and we are stronger and more experienced for surviving the battle.
Although vastly different books, both FBoM and SMAFU deal with the concept of pain, tragedy, and loss. In SMAFU it’s a broken relationship that learns how to deal with starting over and getting stronger. In many ways getting back to basics and beginning again.
FBoM deals with a more brutal kind of pain and loss; more tangible perhaps than the airy fairy nature of personal relationships, yet it shows the strength of character that many abused women display and that I can’t help to be awestruck by.
I hope with all my heart that you can make it through life without experiencing a single heartbreak, tragedy or struggl, but we all know that isn’t realistic. Instead I will hope that you will have help and support as you climb your mountains; find comfort in your friends and family; and grow in strength and spirit becoming the amazing individual we were all intended to become.
