It’s hard for me to accept negative events in my life, and I hope I never have to go through any of the tragic and often traumatic events that some people do. But I’ve met those who have experienced horrific things in their life and made it through them. Some said they actually became stronger because of their ordeal and gave credit to not being afraid to ask for the help they needed. They also told me they were able to find some level of happiness in their lives again.
Although seeking help can be hard for some people, the choice to be happy can be even harder. However, the people I mentioned did make a choice, and some said they were also eventually able to feel grateful for the good things in their lives again. I want to thank them because their stories give me hope that if I were to ever experience a tragedy in my life, I too could make it through and perhaps also find happiness again.
I’m certainly grateful to have met these people, and promise to pass their inspirational stories along to others who need to hear them.
