Experience is the Best Teacher

It’s all too easy to resent my background. The stress my parents have caused me, the trauma I deal with, the constant impact of their alcoholism.

I’ve recently started to see it as a blessing. I have empathy, because I’ve been through a lot, I understood psychology at a deep level when I was completing my university training. But the biggest parlay is the motivation it has given me. The motivation to break the cycle, to raise my children differently and in a safe environment. I work hard everyday to overcome my trauma for my future children. I have the privilege of breaking the cycle; and that, is a real blessing to the future generations. X
