It has taught me that it is not the circumstances outside of me that shape me but the ones inside of me. Looking back, this was one of the toughest times of my life. However, at the same time, this was when I felt most alive, free, and fully in control. It was so liberating. I have realised that what I see depends on what I look for. I began to see the world I wanted to see. My energy slowly returned, and because it originates from within me, it can never be broken.
I learned about my unhealthy patterns and how to change them. By doing so, I created my own new personal reality. One thing I realised the most is that all the people who “hurt me” were hurting themselves and projecting their hurt onto me. Their pain was not mine to carry. I finally understand the importance of healing my pain, and I am getting stronger every day.
