Here are some lines of encouragement that I found enlightening:
“Survivors make the most beautiful people.”
“Life is sweetest when broken.”
“Bliss can be a distraction of fear–facing fears opens the way forward.”
“Life’s meaning and purpose follows surrender.”
“Meaning awakens when we realize our gifts.”
“Meaning is fulfilled when our story finds purpose.”
~All of these are taken from Unexpected by Christine Caine.
