I’ve gone through my share of, what most may say, are traumatic experiences: divorce, cancer, and abuse, to name a few. When I share these experiences publicly many people ask me how I’m still standing, how in the world did I become so positive after so many negative things happened to me.
My answer is always the same: Because I chose to get through and I’m standing even stronger.
And how is that possible?
Because I knew I had to feel all the emotions that came with those “traumas” and deal with them; and that’s how I was able to heal.
No one wants to feel hurt, sadness or brokenness, yet we all do at some point in our life. Many people block those emotions; they tuck them away and believe that they moved on from them. I can tell you that they didn’t. Ignoring what you have to face is lying to yourself and eventually all those emotions you didn’t deal with will catch up with you at some point in your life. They always do.
And when they do catch up with you those around you pay the price for it as well.
Don’t you want to feel happy? Don’t you want to find joy in your life? Don’t you want to let go of an experience that caused you pain?
Sure you do…we all do.
So do it. Take a long look in the mirror at yourself and let your truth come through. Take that experience and all the pain that came with it and deal with it. Feel the pain, the heartache and let the healing waters of your tears flow to release it all. Then forgive the experience so you no longer hold onto it and then forgive yourself for allowing it to hold you back from the happiness you want and deserve.
You can run from those traumatic experiences but trust me, you can’t hide from them until you deal with them.
Feel, deal and heal, my friends.
It’s a good thing.
Wishing you love and light,
