Healing is Fucking Messy

You can move forward. You can move on. You can let go. You can build a new life. You can do all of these things. What you cannot do is heal wounds all at once.

Healing is messy. One day you are on top of the world. Then something triggers a painful memory. I thought of these moments as set backs. Now I am thinking of them as a process.

Everybody heals in their own time. Time, there it is. It takes time and being real with yourself for healing to take place. One thing is for certain, you cannot heal if you suppress your pain.

We are layers of emotions, thoughts and experiences. Sometimes, it all gets jumbled. In times of stress, some emotions get put on the back burner until you find calmer water. That’s why healing is messy. You think once you find calmer water, healing is done. Not so much.
