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:

As I

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

Worthwhile to

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...
