If you haven’t already read our story, please go back to that link and read it first. Now that you know some of the history of our lives and the challenges we’ve faced along the way, you might be wondering why we would choose to vicariously experience other people’s heartache and loss as well as our own.
One of the reasons why we do this, is we've discovered along the way is that healing comes through helping others.
Once you’ve reached some point of acceptance of your loss, in order to move forward you must reach out beyond the circle of your own life and look for opportunities to touch others with compassion. Not only does this help to complete the cycle of healing, but it takes you to the next level of personal growth. Opportunities to help are all around you if you simply open your eyes: from helping a single mom to visiting an elderly person to mentoring a young man or woman who has no one else in their lives.
The journey of healing really never ends, but changes over time as you grow in wisdom and grace.
