First of all, yes, that’s a Tupac quote. One that inspires me and reminds me of the humbling resiliency I’ve noticed in my clients as well as friends and family members.
Sometimes we’re born into or served with oppressive, violent or abusive experiences that lead us to feeling helpless, scared and alone. I’ve seen time and time again the power of the human spirit to survive these experiences and grow out from that concrete.
If you’re feeling like you’re stuck with current or past experiences holding you back from growth, I want you to know that you are not alone! There are many paths to healing, start by asking yourself what you need…and listen for your answer. If you need help figuring this out, reach out to someone you trust or a counselor. I’d be happy to speak with you or point you in the right direction.
