How knowing your own challenges and issues can help others

As I explore and inquire into my life, I understand the challenges I have faced and the amazing ways I have found to survive all that I have been through. And not only survive, but THRIVE in my life!
Knowing and understanding this, it is so much easier to be gentle and understanding with others and their ways of dealing with life.
So once again, I understand that everything starts at the source within me: it is an “inside-out” job! There is no way I can be understanding of others without the understandings I have gained of myself.
Love…
