Stories that Empower

Jan 18, 2022

Poonam is a survivor of sexual assault, abuse and the aftermath and cultural humiliation of divorce. Writing about her experiences was one of the hardest things she's ever done. Today, she helps others overcome trauma, to enable them to feel lighter and better. Poonam shares these powerful nuggets of life wisdom:
- our lives are beautiful gifts
- we can take control of our lives
- we are the pivots of everything around us
- strive to acknowledge and embrace the pain
- how we react to those things is the key component
- by playing the self righteous victim, we justify feeling the way we do
- we are responsible for our own happiness
- life is short
- empower yourself to do the things you want to do without judgement
- it's not selfish to take time for yourself
- touch base with how you feel
- the way we perceive the world is the way we perceive ourselves
- self care is not selfish
