I’m a veterinarian, a mother, a sister, a daughter. I have also chosen unhealthy coping mechanisms such as alcoholism, workaholism, abusive relationships, self trauma etc. For all the amazing achievements I have worked so tirelessly to accomplish in my 43 years of life, I have just as many extreme failures.
I feel it is so important to be humble enough to recognize we all are perfectly imperfect. We were not born with the right to judge anyone because we cannot always discern between the rights and wrongs of life or we choose to ignore the black and white of such things.
We have to meet people at their point of pain in understanding, but we also have to truly understand our own personal boundaries.
Life is hard, it is beautiful, it is wreckless and yet can be in balance.
These statements are so important to truly train yourself to apply to life, because life is unpredictable. I have found that suffering has produced more acceptance in me with others and I cannot judge based on others’ reactions. I can sense and read people so well now, because I have found more understanding through my failures and imperfections.
It is always important to stay aware of the enemy and how the character of the enemy slithers around and through life as a serpent. Find the strength to keep seeking your Higher Power (mine is God) to remain aware and then you can put the past and demons from controlling you and disrupting your true purpose in life.
