You speak of rising above your challenges. This is a most excellent visual, but perhaps there is yet another way to view a situation. Do you know the word “transcend”? It means to go beyond. What if you understood you are not only human. To rise above would give you a bird’s eye view, most certainly, but you can also choose a view that is beyond space and time—that of the soul. Both ways of viewing are meant to take you to the same transcendent viewpoint, so choose your words wisely. Do not let language limit you. Simply know you are not only human.
You are so very loved.
