Rock Bottom

What does it mean to hit Rock Bottom? 
It’s when we reach the end
of a belief system.
A belief system that imprisons
one from being oneself.
Lessons in life repeat with greater
severity until learned.
My Rock Bottom came with the loss
of my family.
Divorce forced me to relinquish
a futile belief system.
One centered on driving for success
and acheivement and proving.
Cover-ups of low self-esteem and
lack of love for me.
Rock Bottom, as painful as it was,
was a miracle.
For when I lifted the Rock
I found a profound truth.
I found Me.
