Lessons from my Jade Egg #019
COURAGE NEEDS BOTH LOVE AND RAGE
The word courage can be split into two - Cour-Rage.
Cour - from the French word Coeur, meaning heart.
Rage - an emotion - fury, anger, fire in the belly.
I could never have found the courage to leave without the rage. And the love of my children. The moment that I was offered a place in a Women’s Shelter, I realised the gravity. The truth of what I was exposing my children to took the air from my lungs. I could loose them forever. I’d already lost myself. Courage.
