The ABC'c of MY Healing Process...
I went on a retreat a few weeks ago. While there, we made some crafts, did a presentation on what represented our healing process, and some group activities. One of the activities was to write all the letters of the alphabet down one edge of the paper. We were then asked to write the ABC's of our Healing Process. Here is mine:
Began my healing process,
Coming to conclusions was
Detrimental to our
Evolution as a vibrant,
Functional human being. We found that
Healthier, was, and
Is more than
Just saying "I'm going to do it". I had to
Know, deep down in my heart, that I had to
Live it. This can sometimes
Make for a
Person to be before people, at times. While others were
Quick to judge; for the most part, people
Respected our need to vent, and to
Share what was going on in our heart and mind at this
Time. In time, we grew to
Understand that the struggle was
Very important, and
eXamine our hearts' purpose.
Yelling, and screaming, and crying helped us to become the happy, healthy person you see before you; from the
Zero we were devolving into.
You see, to truly heal, you have to deal with the good, the bad, and the ugly of your feelings. There is no formula, or shortcut to it...a friend of mine used to say, "If it's 5 miles to get into the forest, it's still 5 miles to get out".
Have a good day, and be safe...
