After months of silence, Christina shared an expert from David Crosby's book, Your Pain is Changing You, that seemed to hold a special meaning for the young mother.
She posted the expert:
"You do not get to choose the events that come your way nor the sorrows that interrupt your life. They will likely be a surprise to you, catching you off guard and unprepared.
You may hold our head in your hands and lament your weak condition and wonder what you ought to do. To suffer, that is common to all. To suffer and still keep your composure, your faith, and your smile, that is remarkable.
Pain will change you more profoundly than success or good fortune. Suffering shapes your perception of life, your values and priorities, and your goals and dreams. Your pain is changing you."
She wasn't the only person in the relationship to share her feelings about their rocky past online. After Christina posted her quote, Tarek took to Instagram to share his own sentiments about the last year.
Tarek posted a quote from Harry Potter author, J.K. Rowling, that read:
"Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life."
In addition the quote, Tarek captioned the photo with an emotional message:
"This quote really stood out to me. We've all faced obstacles and for many they were so horrific they hit the lowest point of their life with no future in sight...
When you are at the bottom you feel nothing but pain, misery and despair.
Even though you can't see the light at the bottom it still exists and as time goes on that light starts to shine. Once that light starts to shine take the opportunity to reevaluate who you are and what you want to be. Take it as an opportunity to bounce back and be stronger than ever.
In my opinion, rock bottom is an opportunity to start over and do it right!"
Even though the past year has been difficult for the two home-flipping superstars, it's clear they're growing as individuals and working to better the lives of their two children. We wish them nothing but the best in the years to come.
