What is the key to overcoming a history of abuse, trauma and extraordinary circumstances, in order to thrive in life?
This is essentially the question I was asked in an interview on BBC talk radio not too long ago.
I don’t think there is one right answer. For me however, I was fortunate enough to have met someone early in life who taught me that the only way out of suffering is contribution.
It’s not uncommon or wrong to feel overwhelmed. It’s not uncommon to feel helpless, nor is it uncommon to be struggling to the point where you can’t even begin to conceive your passion or purpose in life.
Yet, the answer to all of this may start with the question “who else is suffering through what I have suffered?”
What have you learned, and developed as a result of your suffering that can help alleviate the suffering of others? This may be the key to contribution, meaningful value, the discovery of your passion and your own healing.
