Being honest, real, and open is my first step toward healing. When I reference “healing”, I mean from any degree of pain, in any area of health, within my life.
Allowing pain to teach me has only blossomed my character, and it’s prevented repeating occurrences of the same issue. I’m open minded to such teaching, because I refuse to decay into this crippling, bitter, and lonely woman who takes life for granted.
My reality right now, is I’m not OK. I’m heartbroken. I’m cold. I’m an emotional mess. My heart can’t handle any more hurt. I battle depression…. I do so much more successfully, though.
Since, I’ve grown by leaps and bounds. Right now, self care, is pivotal… But, so is accepting not being OK. If I can’t accept what is, I will never be anything more.
“It is not the the bruises on the body that hurt. It is the wounds of the heart and the scars on the mind.”
