Lately, many of my posts have been about adverse childhood experiences (ACEs).
These posts have not exactly been a joy to read. Actually someone commented one post was “tough to like”. I totally understood where that person was coming from. I do not enjoy reading posts that are sad or reminiscent of painful experiences either. However, I am aware of the importance of some people exposing those feelings with the intention of healing. Even my blog site title can be interpreted as a bit negative if you analyze or perceive it in that manner.
Pain, passion, purpose is an evolving process that I believe we go through. Because I see the potential in the end result – PURPOSE – it is positive to me.
At first glance, dealing with childhood trauma definitely doesn’t rate high on the positive side. Actually the outcomes are what I focus on:
- What are the lessons learned?
- What good decisions can I make now?
- How will my health improve from resolving past hurts?
- Who will I have a better understanding of?
- Who can I support?
- Is my passion clearer now?
This is all POSITIVE! What do you think?
