I am posting this now because of a video I saw of Elizabeth Smart speaking about how she faced her trauma. Although I will write in more detail about the accident at a later date, I wanted to share this now.
Please watch the video and hear what she has to say.
As a survivor,whether it be from a young age from trauma, relationships, deployments and just up until 9 months ago this hit home.
I am still trying to forgive the person who hit our car for reasons still not quite clear. He put my daughter and I both in the hospital. I am still recovering after 5 surgeries with a 6th scheduled.
Powerful quotes from Elizabeth Smart-
“Forgiveness isn’t for the other person, it is for yourself”
“What happened to you doesn’t define you it’s about how you react “
“The best thing you can do is to show them you are happy”
Very powerful. Very true.
