Linda Jackson (whys) | 13 comments To consistently be the one no one ever wanted, the one that others ridiculed or the one whose hopes were crushed hurt to the point where I gave way under its weight. But when I hit that bottom, it was as though I'd smacked into something, some place from which I sensed I could grasp answers, feel the intuitive knowing, and gather necessary strength. I'm still writing about it.

Tracey Hook | 47 comments Writing often heals the hurt. And sometimes the strength you find is within yourself. Beautifully written Linda and I hope you keep the strength within.

Linda Jackson (whys) | 13 comments That saying, 'no pain, no gain', I used to intensely dislike. But now, many years later, with hindsight on those numerous pains, I know I wouldn't be as insightful or understanding if I hadn't had those experiences. My main focus now is on 'the journey to life', the inspiration, awe, beauty, intrigue and all that uplifts, empowers or in any way brings about my soul smile. This helps me rise beyond the hurting things life dishes out.
