Looking at the picture of a wooden bridge is enough to cause some people to feel anxious, uncomfortable, nauseous, or disoriented. Another person may view the bridge as an opportunity to cross between two parts of their life. Although there is some risk in crossing the bridge, it is important to recognize there is also risk in not crossing the bridge. In my mind, the concept of crossing a bridge is a perfect metaphor for all survivors of adversity and the people with whom they interact. If you are unhappy with your new normal, step outside your comfort zone. Perhaps, happiness is possible again.
