In a way, Christine McDonald has done even better. She started being vulnerable, and hurting, and needing to run away from that pain using self-destructive behaviors, particularly drug addiction. All the same, she managed to end up in the same place as Viktor and Najaf. Her circumstances are still highly challenging today, and yet she is far more high functioning than most people with objectively easy lives.
This is post-traumatic growth at its best. Using an analogy I often offer to my clients, she truly has been turned into a diamond by the terrible pressures of her past. Not only is she coping, also she is actively advocating for others, doing her considerable best to make this planet a better place for the disadvantaged.
One of my cliches is: "Only two things matter in this life: what you take with you when you die, and what you leave behind in the hearts of others. Everything else is Monopoly money." Christine is on the right path, not despite her many mistakes and sufferings, but because of them; because eventually she made Choices that advanced her in spiritual development.
Here are three quotes from the book that are worth printing, and sticking onto your mirror: "You can't go back to fix the past. However, you can let go of the guilt and shame and move on from this day forward." "Somewhere along the path of struggling to live blind, I found that my blindness had become my blessing." "I grow through my challenges."
Whatever your circumstances, if you feel sorry for yourself, feel resentment and are tortured by the monster "Not Fair Why Me?" then read this book, and use this lady as your shining example.
I would recommend this book to anyone there is value and wisdom for both sides of the track ! Thanks Christine
