The moments we remember the most are the ones that have helped shape who and what we become
by Lisa A. Romano
The moments we remember the most are the ones that have
defined us and helped shape who and what we become.
Our most painful moments are the ones that break us in some
way. They rip the world from beneath our feet and cause us to
feel like we are free floating in an abyss. We can become
terrified, arrested in fear and lose our sense of safety.
In my life, I have come to realize all those moments were
opportunities to let pain out and let love in. I have had many experiences break me more times than I’d like to recall, however, upon reflection, the moments that broke me were chances to become as tough as steel.
Every time my heart was broken, I had the opportunity to let go
of the fear that caused me to cling to something that did not
serve me, and learn to rely more on the love within.
Now I know that when I was breaking I was actually experiencing awakening.
