I think a poignant part of getting to know what makes a person tick is having an understanding  what made them tick in the first place.  Some may ask, who is this Trina Stewart?  Some may not.

The Darker Side of Me

  • I have a wall up that is probably 8 feet tall which very few people can get over.
  • Grew up in a home where my brother, ten years older than me, abused drugs and alcohol.  A lot of scary nights and worry.
  • Between the years of 1995-2000 was the most tragic but educational period of my life.
  • Married in 1994, I had my first child in 1995
  • My house burnt down on July 7, 1996.  We lost everything.  The house was a pool of plastic from my daughter’s toys.
  • I had my son on November 1, 1996.  We lived with my parent’s while we built a new home.
  • My best friend in the whole world moved to Ontario January of 1997.  I was completely at a loss.
  • We moved to Ontario May of 1997 as I hated my new house and was traumatized.
  • Father in Law was diagnosed with Lung Cancer May of 1997.  Feelings of remorse about moving surfaced.
  • Husband and I split up May 13, 1999, a day before our wedding anniversary.  One week later, my brother died of an overdose in Hamilton, ON.
  • Spent News Year’s Eve with my husband to bring in the new millennium.  Realized that all men are pretty much the same and he isn’t 1/2 bad after all.
  • Reunited with husband February of 2000 and been going strong ever since.  The solution:  Independence, Love, Giving Space, and not Controlling the Other Person.
    We all come into the world alone, we all leave it alone, the in between should also be dictated by us as well.
  • I realized that was clinically depressed years ago.  Tried drugs, hated them.  Wake up most mornings wishing that I didn’t wake up, have coached myself to snap out of it within the first minute.  Wayne Dyer and Kimberly Carroll (of Toronto) has shown me a better way to look at my life.
  • I am a complete unorganized mess when people are in my space.
  • I love to be alone with my thoughts.

So there you have it, this is what makes me, ME.   If my trials of life have taught me anything it is this:

We come into this world alone and we leave this world alone.
We cannot control another’s person life, we can only control our own.
Live your dreams.  Take time to breath.
Live together independently and the true meaning of relationship will surface.
