Just like my Mom told me, all our struggles are because God loves us!
You know for a really long time I was really angry about the hard times I have gone through. I felt like every possible hard ship that a person could have, got thrown right in front of me! I was so mad and I hated my life. I felt like it just wasn’t fair! Most people go through one big hardship in their lives but I was getting hit with everything!
Then I started realizing that I was able to help others through their tough times because I had gone through it myself. As well, I was noticing that people came to me when they were struggling and I could help them.
It took me a long time to accept that I have absolutely no talent, until I saw that helping people is my talent. I would much rather be able to make others feel better and help them find a reason to smile and be positive again, than some other things that I might have had.
I think that anytime a person can help someone through a tough time it heals the soul! I feel blessed that I can understand and help a few extra people in my life!
