“My life has taught me that there is a wealth of strength within us, there is nothing we cannot handle. Life presents it’s purpose and beauty in all sorts of ways. The trick is to stay open to one’s strength, to not deny or strive to prove it, but rather to simply have it.”
Matthew Sanford, from Waking: A Memoir of Trauma and Transcendence

I like this quote alot. But maybe one has to identify ones strengths first. It's possible that a person's desire leads them away from their strength. So the key may be to educate one's desire.
I have not listened to the program yet, so I'm gonna get on it. Thanks.

I tried to listen to the show but I only got through about ten minutes before I had to stop. I really wanted to hear what Matt said. I did get the part about healing stories, but at the same time, the conversation stripped all my healling stories away reveiling just how shattered I am. It's happened before, but it's always a shock. I need a break, thanks.
