Serge Benhayon has been an incredible and intricate part of my life in many ways, both in how I am with myself, in my relationships, my family and how I now choose to live.
I have been blessed to know Serge for over 15 years and during this time my life has certainly had its ups and downs. When we first met, it was most certainly at a major down. I lived my days in major overwhelm, chaos and complication, seeking solace in Pilates, alcohol, marijuana, work and the isolation of my property which I saw as my haven, my escape from the world.
Serge has been an absolute support and inspiration for me in my relationship with my partner, always there no matter what time of day or night. He listened to me cry, rant, rave or blame, forever feeling like I was in a relationship that had no purpose, a relationship where we were constantly at each other, nit picking, highly reactive to each other. I remember one day calling Serge in absolute tears, I could barely talk, which happened many times during the early years of with my partner and my relationship, and again, he listened intently, offering simple words, ‘Be patient, give it time’. Words I had heard before from him, and all I could think was, ‘Really… again… how patient can a woman be?!’. I was waiting for the ‘I told you so’ however never in my 15+ years of knowing Serge has he ever told me what to do or what not to do … that is the beautiful thing, he never judges, criticises or imposes anything at anytime.
