Live the life your soul wants

11.We are what we have overcome

It’s amazing what the human spirit can survive. We are all born equal, yet we are not equal in skill, intelligence or self-development, but we are all more than we think we are.

I have survived violence, hardship, loss and tragedy however, I would not be the person I am today if I hadn’t been through and overcome those experiences. There were many times I didn’t want to be here, but the will to live for a greater purpose was stronger. I accept this is what my soul wanted me to evolve for the better.

Two people can come from a similar experience yet go on in life making very different choices about how they do or don’t overcome their challenges. We could then ask why one person from a violent upbringing repeats the same violence on others, whereas another chooses to not repeat those patterns and live a very different life. It all comes down to what we choose.

We all have a voice and the ability to be empowered, rather than accept what society says we can or can’t overcome. What we have overcome we don’t have the right to tell someone else they can do it just because we have, but we can show others it can be done.
