We can be wounded throughout our lives and grow or become victimised and broken. Often times we don't even realise that we had a choice. When we know our pain and accept it we can be present with the darkness of others. Compassion lives where hurt people stop hurting people. Together we can heal, and connected we will shine Darmaholic is a funny word that I made up to describe my dharma beliefs and my alcoholic education. In the second half of this life, I can share my experience and strength, combined with the wisdom and compassion that has been my blessing to receive from my dharma buddies.
