The best thing I ever did in my life was volunteer to become a crisis counsellor.
It helped me search beneath the surface of my my own mind for the reasons I was compassionate with people who hurt and neglected me from childhood to present day.
There was a reason…and I knew it was buried somewhere but training to be a counsellor helped me find the words.
It also helped me find the boundaries to know when that compassion had run its course and it was time to walk away for my own protection.
The soul knows how to heal wounds of all kinds but sometimes the heart might be a little unwilling to let go as much as the mind.
