Empowering Women To Achieve More: Patti’s Perspective

Growth Through Adversity

We’ve heard it many times, “it’s through the challenges we face, lies the greatest opportunity for growth.” Adversity allows us to build resilience, step into our greatness and find our true selves.

I just wish it didn’t hurt so much.

When I went through my divorce, I felt like I was drowning. Literally, there were times I couldn’t catch my breath. When I would pop up for air, something pushed me back under water, or so it felt.

2020 was a similar experience for many of us. One punch to the gut after another. But, take it from someone who has walked a slippery slope before, it does get better. Far better than you could
imagine. If you’re going through adversity, whether it’s COVID, divorce, loss of a loved one, financial uncertainties, or any other challenging issue, give yourself some grace. Resilience can be messy. Take the time to heal, find your voice and lean on others when you need to. We can’t do this journey called life, alone.
