Living with trauma, not knowing about my disability; or being able to piece my life together, would have cost me my mental health. Through my blog, being able to piece my life and experiences together, I am giving back and that feels good.
Piecing my life together without any concrete information to work from over the years, has been difficult, because I was dealing with trauma. When you go through any kind of trauma, it is always difficult to equate exactly what you go through. That part isn’t easy, but if through your experiences you can make other people’s life easier, then it says a lot about you.
Fast forward to 2021 and through my blog, ‘giving back’ has given me my life back. Giving back has allowed me to understand my experiences that we may all relate to. It is because I understand my life that I am able to give back in this way.

Giving back gives others a voice, where they may struggle to find theirs. It’s an act of selflessness. Helping is not only an act of kindness, but it can bring happiness, less stress, less irritabilities and less anxiety.
When you help others with no expectations of anything in return, you feel fulfilled. It feels good. It is the ‘spiritual’ way. It is what the universe expects of us and something we should want to anticipate for ourselves.
It’s a caring thing to do. It’s why we’re here on planet ‘earth.’ Where we may be motivated by greed, our lives will be spiritually unfulfilled. What we give, we get back in return in abundance.
When we help others, with no expectations and no repayments, we become better people. Our heart and light shines bright when we help others.
