Are you nursing your wound?
It is your right.
But if it goes on for years, it will never heal.
Do you want it to heal?
Do you know it can heal?
The healing does not mean you won’t have a scar. It doesn’t mean you don’t have limitations.
It doesn’t mean you have no control or say over your feelings.
It means you will live again. It will be different and that is okay. There is no “new normal”.
It is survival. Not a gasping for air kind of survival, but a kind of day to day rhythm that keeps you afloat.
If you want to live after the pain you have to live during the pain. You will get through it.
Don’t be your own worst enemy.
