As a military child, I was faced with the uncertainty of change more often than many people, and it pushed me to develop coping skills; some healthy, some not so healthy. Through my own counseling, I was able to discover the parts of me that I wanted to hold on to, the parts that developed those healthy skills.
WE HAVE HOPE, AS AN ANCHOR FOR THE SOUL
But it also allowed me to challenge the unhealthy parts of myself and learn to let go of them. I have come to realize, the one constant that has always gotten me through hard times, and will continue to, is hope. Hope for the future, hope for me, hope for others, hope that things can be different, that they can be better. And that has been an anchor in the storm of life. Life, just like the ocean, can be rough, smooth, blissful, or terrifying. But when we have something to anchor us down, we can survive. I love helping other people find their hope, their anchor.
