Our experiences of pain are as worthy of validation as are our experiences of love and joy. One big error that people make is to repress and ignore the pain. They do not realise that when they do this, they repress much of the joy and love with it. Everyone’s childhood is full of joys and sorrows, whether they acknowledge it or not. When we can grow to accept both together as part of our reason for existence is when we begin to live in abundance. The stages of deep trauma surface each individual in their own unique way. There is no deadline in transcending the past, only inevitable changes that will occur due to how we choose to embrace or postpone the realities of how we allowed it to affect our personal power.
