It seems the most interesting, complex and inspiring people I know have all been through something really hard. They’ve struggled somehow.
Struggles help us develop resilience. Often in order to survive, we start searching for things – help, resources, conversations, maybe something inside ourselves like our own strengths.
But not everyone who struggles finds their light. Some stay in the darkness. Some feel beaten down by their experience and just can’t seem to find the strength to get up and out of it. They feel like the world is against them, or they’re a victim of their own circumstance.
So what’s the difference? Why do some people’s struggles seem to make them, while others break them?
So how do we start to find that meaning? How to we start to recognize the wisdom in our own achievements? Instead of just the details of our own stories?
