Experiencing Trauma Makes Us Empathetic
Experiencing trauma makes us empathetic;
it’s our intuitive human magic.
All experiences, whether positive or negative, build our understanding of the world in which we live. Everyone exaggerates, fluffs themselves up, wants to be special – it’s all show. Being empathetic, we do not find fault, as we see whatever is behind this hyperbole; it’s usually a lack of true confidence.
Why a lack of confidence?
The world is one great confidence trick.
We are led to believe.
When we can no longer just believe,
we lose confidence in the “Daily Confidence Trick”.
Understanding this, the magic begins, and real confidence returns.
There is nothing to fear.
“It is the suffering that evokes the humanity of the human heart.” ~ Joseph Campbell
Yes, we learn how to mask our suffering, and fear to unmask ourselves.
