When you experience a life-changing experience, your perception changes. You can either go back to what nearly killed you or allow yourself to grow from the experience.
Learning how to adapt in a new world can be scary. Learning how to love yourself when you hated yourself based off your past can be a fearful. Everyone one that’s been through something in life either allowed the change to keep them in the fear or they grew from it.
There is no point to holding onto things. Learning that detachment is a part of living is the biggest lesson we need to learn. We are so attached to things that will one day die. So embrace and hold what’s true to you for the moment. Life is just a experience. There is no deeper meaning to the ego other than the meaning you create for yourself. Emotions just confuse us from being.
