“I wasn’t able to discover my why until I went into that suffering from my childhood,” says Pouncil. She does, however, recognize that not everyone will find their purpose in their childhood trauma. Or perhaps they’d like a different approach. “A less painful way of going about it is asking friends ‘What is my unique gift?’” she says. Pouncil actually asked her friends to answer a few questions about her, including “What am I great at?” “What do I suck at?” “What is my unique gift?” and “What can I not be counted on for?” She says that her friends shared very telling information about her, revealing to her a love she has of helping others.
