John Maxwell says, “When you know your why, you know the history and purpose of each experience in your life.” (Intentional Living, p. 84)
I know why I faced the challenge of depression for 12 years. It was to learn empathy for others with the same challenge. And it was to provide hope for healing by providing mentoring and resources to people with the same struggle I had.
I have had two journeys: the ten years of enduring and the last six years of overcoming. It has placed me in a position to offer hope for others.
Purpose. What is yours? If there were no barriers, what would you share with the world? How is your current situation preparing you for your purpose, your why? There is something for you to do. And lives are counting on you to do it.
