Engaging in counseling can help us open our own hearts and help us “reflect on how our actions affect other people’s hearts.”
“As long as women are isolated one from the other, not allowed to offer other women the most personal accounts of their lives, they will not be part of any narrative of their own.”
It is my wish that all women get the opportunity to share their lives & stories with one another otherwise, too much wisdom is lost.
There are succulents that live in the desert which only bloom when the environment is just right. They can wait for years and years, decades even, and then conditions change and suddenly the blossoms come forth. I think this is how it is for many women at mid-life. Many have hunkered down for a long time and waited for their opportunity to bloom again. My hope is that all women will allow themselves to blossom fully, because all women deserve that!
