Your pain doesn't make you special...

Your pain doesn't make you special.

Even though it feels like it should.

Because no matter what tragic thing happens to you, you are no more injured or abused than the whole lot of us.

If you focus on your pain as what sets you apart you miss the point. You ignore the beauty in yourself and your potential. The core in you. Imago Dei.

So walk through the pain and fight the fear engaging the beauty in whatever small ways you find it.

Even small lights dispel darkness. And they are worth pursuing.
