John William Tuohy lives in Washington DC

Take away its power

I’ve been working on trying to find a positive aspect in everything no matter what it is. So I looked over the tragedies of my life; like being born poor, raised as an orphan, my failures along the road of life, and I asked myself “Where’s the positive?” 

I looked and I looked and I looked some more but I couldn’t find it.

I thought about it for months. I went over each horrible event and I think the answer might be that those episodes made me a better man. They gave me a sense of humility and with time a higher sense of social intelligence that helps me to better understand what others are going through.  I see them as part of the positive and in that I took away their power
