When I hit my "crucible" moment in life at the age of 35, I was extremely angry, resentful and bitter. Would I have considered myself to be in pain though? Probably not. It was only through the work that I did with a coach and therapist, that I could see what was lying beneath that anger: fear and pain.
Sometimes we can't the pain that lies behind some of our emotions. But when we do, one of the best ways to heal that pain is to take the spotlight OFF of you and shine it onto others. When we turn to healing our own pain, we can heal our own.
