Other people’s pain!

There will be times in your life people enter your journey… at the time you may believe they are tuned into the very essence of your soul… from the bright parts of your humanity – to the darkness of your pain and trauma.

You may believe they will understand or if they do not understand, they will over time attempt to seek an understanding… times where you can explain, share or show up in your courage may or may not present themselves – this is your moment not theirs…

inherently those souls are on their journey – they are momentarily interested in you because you are helping them navigate their own pain and suffering…

remember you are healing through your own darkness and trauma… knowing your own difficulties make you more compassionate towards life… and they feel your compassion and love… needing it to prop themselves up whilst navigating their own trauma…

this experience is no reason to stop being compassionate – in fact if anything it increases the need to be compassionate – because in time the soul heals and knowing that you’ve tried your best, offered kindness in the space of other people’s anger and judgement and remembered the essence of your own soul… you will shine again…

in recovery we grow, it’s holding onto the reality of our decisions – understanding why we walked a path, and made the choices we made that frees our souls to keep loving…

I realised yesterday as I reflected on the day and it’s  experiences, those people who use your energy and love to endure their trauma know deep within themselves what they are doing… if they pass on this gift they are healing others through the darkness of their moments.. shining light for others they deserve love themselves…

if they do not and they are about themselves – let the lesson sit and gently free your own heart from the shame… they knew all along that they would not pass kindness and compassion forward.. you were a stepping stone for them…

if you carried their pain and understood their trauma, even in your own moment of grief you will in time heal yourself… forgive yourself.. it is ok…

being treated with distain by others is no reason to treat others with distain… in offering kindness, understanding and compassion we find our way… we light our path and the path for others…

no matter what, I know today I will pay love and kindness forward… and give a little of myself to keep others safe… from darkness comes love, peace and happiness…
