Learning from the Unexpcted

This does not take away the fear and terror so common with PTSD but I continue to learn and discover that I can trust life while also holding the fear and terror.

It may have taken me 56 years to see the whole picture of my life and to see that goodness has come out of it all. Today, I truly believe that I am safe.
