Kathryn’s spouse abandoned her and just walked out. She experienced the following: loss of clarity, felt debilitated, was isolated, felt shame and lack of worthiness. So, she journaled. A friend came to her rescue and “saved her life” by empowering her and reminding her that she is better than this and stronger than this. Kathryn shares these wonderful nuggets of life wisdom:
– each of us has a vast amount of untapped strength
– we have the ability to remodel and reshape our lives, if we are willing to work hard and persevere
– asking for help is not weakness, but rather a sign of strength
– let’s take stock of what we are facing and what we need; then seek someone that can guide us to get us through it
– we are not alone
