Why? Because what we’re passionate about gives us joy.
I’ve been thinking about this lately. Regardless of how my passion evolves from year to year, “hope” has always been the common thread. That’s because I’m a survivor of child sexual abuse.
Surprised? You shouldn’t be. Think about it. When a child is abused by someone that child loves and depends on, the child will create a story in which the abuse is really the child’s fault, not the fault of the parent or guardian.
We know all about that, don’t we? It’s the only way we could survive the horrors of abuse. That story gave us hope. It promised us if we could just be better and do better the abuse would stop. Of course, that never worked. It’s not reality.
Still, that story trained me to hope. It drove me to do whatever I could to improve myself and my situation. As an adult, I applied that same strategy to my healing journey. It became my passion. I kept pushing forward, confident the next book, support group, speaker, video, or webinar would be the key to a big breakthrough. And it was. Every single breakthrough on my healing journey happened exactly that way.
As I changed, my passion changed. I became passionate about helping others as an Advocate, Speaker, and Coach. I want to teach everyone how to heal and how to keep kids safe from child sexual abuse.
Now “love” is my passion. We can never stop the violence in our society until we learn how to truly love ourselves. Only then can we love others in a healthy way.
