Why did I want to die? Because living was just so damn hard, even at age 10. When all I had to do was get up in the morning and go to school, it was more than drudgery; it was excruciating. - Sharon Rainey, Making a Pearl from the Grit of Life

Making a Pearl From the Grit of Life

I’m not ‘different’ from anyone else. Crises and tough emotional periods are the grit around which my inner self has been formed. Some, I have come through with more grace than others. - Sharon Rainey, Making a Pearl from the Grit of Life

Making a Pearl from the Grit of Life allows us to follow Sharon Rainey on a veryprivate path of early trauma. It leads us through depths of the human spirit -- depths we come to recognize as very much like our own -- and, through hard-won lessons, emerge onto a higher place of inner strength and ...

I had to clear up my messy life. By letting go of the debris and filth, I have come to a deeper, more soulful beauty and clarity like an oasis in the desert. From that place of clarity, a vision of what I could have, what I could do, who I could be has emerged if I allow my heart to become a place of compassion, acceptance and forgiveness. - Sharon Rainey, Making a Pearl from the Grit of Life

09/27/2019

I am, by God’s design, a “feeler.” Everything in the world I interpret with my feelings. I am hyper-sensitive to others’ hurtful words. I find it almost impossible to let what others say “just roll off my back.” I personalize too much of what anyone says to me. This is definitely not a good characteristic, but it is how God created me. I have worked very hard through the years to change this, with very little success. - Sharon Rainey, Making a Pearl from the Grit of Life

Deep down inside of me, way down deep, in a place previously unknown; I heard it: a solid, honest, compassionate whisper. It was quiet, very quiet. But it was clear. And it was true. “If you go back into that house, you will never come back out.” - Sharon Rainey, Making a Pearl from the Grit of Life
