This topic for the blog challenge could not be more perfect. I have recently decided to make changes on my blog and future of my business based on my passion. My passion is that I want to encourage, support and inspire people through challenges they face in their business or life. It gives me such joy to be there
When I went through my health crisis four years ago I didn’t have a lot of people who could relate or understand what I had gone through. Having a massive stroke in your 20’s is uncommon so it was hard for people to relate. I also discovered that a lot of people have a hard time being their for other people. It’s not that they don’t want to I think it’s just they don’t know what to say so they either say nothing or say the wrong thing. I experienced both of these after my stroke. I had people I loved and thought I was really close to pull away and distance themselves from me. It took a long time to realize this was their issue with not knowing how to deal with uncomfortable or unknown situations and not about me. I also had people who said insensitive things that hurt my feelings and made me feel bad because they were inappropriate or rude.
Through this experience though I have learned how to be more compassionate and a kinder person and have realized that whatever people are going through they need people like that in their lives. Anytime I have the opportunity to support someone going through a difficult time in their own life and know that I have made them feel better or at least heard and understood it gives me such a great feeling and I realized this is what I’m meant to do. I need to figure out a way to take my passion for helping and connecting to other people and share it with everyone. I want to be someone that people feel comfortable going to with questions or when they need help or support, or when they feel alone. That is what I have gained from blogging and connecting to my followers and is so much more important to me than anything else I could blog about.
So know that I have been through tough times and I have struggled but I am through the worst of it and I am stronger because of it. So if you need some encouragement and support I am here.
