It’s been just about a month since I held the first ever Soul Spa Virtual Retreat. Looking back it was such a rewarding experience; it was a joy to lead the women, watch them embrace themselves, each other, and hear their “aha” moments. One aha in particular has stuck with me. At the end of the day I asked them what they were taking away and one woman said, “that we are all in the same boat”.
If you ever think that you are the only one who struggles. If you think no one else knows what you are going through. I want to assure you that you are not alone. This is in no way meant to minimize your pain or your experience. Instead take solace, you are not an outlier, damaged or a weirdo.
No one gets through this life unscathed. The challenge is to put down your armor enough to connect with people who get you and can support you when you need it. And for you to do the same for someone else.
You are not alone.
