Getting Over It

Posted on 11 June 2008

Listen: Be the Change 2008-06-11

How do you get over a grudge or betrayal? How do you get on with your life after you have been hurt? We interview Amber Chand, once a refugee from her home in Uganda, now the director of a non-profit organization that helps refugee women world-wide. Listeners contribute with their stories of turning despair to inspiration by simply taking action.

Quotes from the show:

  • “It takes effort to hold a grudge.”
  • “When we’re hurt, we’re often expected to respond in like fashion. When we don’t, it’s disarming.”
  • “Never look down on a person unless you’re picking them up.”
  • “It’s not the circumstances that we go through that determine how we live our lives. It’s the meaning we attach to the circumstance.”
