Wisdom is defined as "the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgement; the quality of being wise." Wisdom is a word I am often told I have. In order to gain wisdom, people must go through rigorous education and experience in a particular field. My wisdom stems from my trauma.
Do I consider myself wise? Not really, I do however, consider myself experienced in the areas of infant loss, mental health issues, babies, separation and divorce and resilience. Through all of life's journeys, the paths I have been down, the paths I am now seeking, I have learned some valuable lessons along the way. I have learned to look at life differently, what things truly matter, how to handle tough situations, how to rebound after breaking, I have learned a tremendous amount about the above topics because of experience and also education.
Humor and humility are two of my coping mechanisms. Family and friends are valued more than anything. Eating as many tacos as I want is perfectly acceptable. When I speak, I speak with the real, raw truth. Life can be shitty and pretending it isn't doesn't help anyone. These are some of the life lessons I have learned.
People often come to be for advice because as they say, I am wise. I don't mind offering suggestions, I always make sure to say this has been my experience and what I have done but everyone is different. You will take what you hear and do what fits you. At least you should. You are your own person, you will find your own way but the guidance and suggestions of others.
There are days I seek the same from others, as resilient as I am and as much as I have learned, I still need to rely on others to help me in moments of time. Seeking help from others helps me build more resilience and gain greater strength. It allows me to be human and understand that I can't always be the wise or strong person I need to be. It shows me that even I too break. In those times, others step in to help me through and after, I turn that back around to help others.
Experiences give people wisdom, so I guess you could say I am wise as my life has been full of experiences thus far and I'm just beginning! Thanks trauma.
