BROKEN COMPASS HOW TO SAVE A LIFE

Do you know someone or are you one of those people labelled negatively by family or peers or community? Or have you lost someone due to depression or addictions? Or are you a person struggling to pull yourself out of a state of mind threatening your actual existence?

After years of searching for answers and for healing in order to move forward with the life right for her, Broken Compass How To Save A Life author, Kaitlin Ann Trepanier, shares her lifetime struggle as a member of an invisible minority made more invisible by her repeated attempts to escape a world determined, by ignorance and intolerance, to force her to conform to their expectations or to not exist in their world.

Shared for those struggling to discover and claim their authentic life and the people around them, family, friends, communities, and professionals, Kaitlin’s emotionally naked tale illuminates and inspires while she attempts to respect and protect the privacy of the people she encountered on her challenging and often traumatic life’s journey.

RESPECT … It’s a “Live and Let Live” Thing Unless …

Where Does the Boldness and Confidence Come From To Do Something Unfamiliar, Uncommon … Extra Ordinary?

Now I understand why most people think I’m crazy, as I certainly have too, because they, like me, did not or do not know about or believe in the Biblical “Gifts of the Spirit” including but not limited to wisdom, knowledge, healing and the “Gift of Faith.”

To some degree we all have faith. We sit on a chair and trust it to hold us. We go to sleep and trust we will wake in the morning. We get into a car and trust we will get where we want to go. Women get pregnant and trust they will bear a child … etc. etc. etc. This is everyday, familiar, and normal faith we are all blessed with.

Then there are times or people who are blessed by the Holy Spirit with a “Gift of Faith” … an extra shot of faith to believe and do something out of the ordinary, such as establish worldwide ministries, serve as missionaries, serve as scientists who study for years to discover breakthroughs, parents raising disabled children, world explorers, and the list goes on and on. For me, I never felt experienced the desire or faith to have and raise children, but I do feel strongly about every life being treated as valuable, simply for being a life.

This all came to a head 25 years ago when I argued with God about the state of the world, how could He allow the trauma, the horrors, etc. I demanded that if He wanted me to stay in this world He had to give me a purpose, something that had been lacking in my spirit, or to take me home. What He gave me was the notion of making respect a global principle to reduce this world’s horrors. Since then, the road has been extremely challenging, made more so because I now know most people I know or have met, are not aware about the extra ordinary gifts of faith the Holy Spirit gives people to accomplish goals beyond the familiar and normal.

So, hopefully, now with this shared knowledge people will be able appreciate versus dis the people God designed to do unusual things to help make the world a better place.

This World is Tough on Everyone …

COURAGE … that quality of mind or spirit enabling one to meet danger or opposition with fearlessness, calmness, and firmness

ENCOURAGE … To inspire with courage, hope, or resolution, hearten, help, foster, be favourable toward, boost confidence

DISCOURAGE … To weaken courage or lessen confidence, deter, dissuade, obstruct, hinder, attempt to repress by disapproval

And APATHY … silence, inaction, indifference, unconcern, lack of care, emotion and interest is discouragement’s silent weapon

THIS WORLD is tough on everyone. THIS WORLD would be much better if we encouraged, rather than discouraged each other.

When I first conceptualized “Respect as a Principle” to address …

Talking about my idea to an acquaintance, she asked me, “What if someone stole your idea?”

I smiled and replied, “That would prove they did not get the concept.”

With the concept initially recorded several years ago as the idea behind the non-profit corporation I founded as “It is All About Respect, Inc.” I closed the non-profit and renamed the initiative, “Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle,” and registered the company as my sole proprietorship that will one day become a Limited Liability Partnership.

From the beginning I attracted encouragement from several people, but I also attracted naysayers. What surprised me the most though were the people who wanted to take my work and run with it … without paying for my years of study, research, and experience, nor my creative efforts in discovering, naming, and writing based on the concept. And the people who wanted to take my work were professionals who saw the potential and wanted to take the credit as well as infringe on my copyright for their gains. A few memorable examples include a friend, who obviously was not a friend, a social worker, a community organization employee, and a consultant.

I used to worry about the theft of over 25 years work, but thankfully, as someone who has finally put my faith in God and His protection, because this was His idea anyway when I yelled at Him during my dark night of the soul and demanded, “If you exist, give me a purpose or take me home!” now I do not.

So, here I still am, 25 years later, healed and prepared to go all the way transforming respect from a discretionary value to a global principle by helping people to understand why the concept … the idea … the philosophy is sound … logical, practical, and compassionate.

Stay tuned!
