"Jumping In..." (Connie J...)
If you try "jumping in" to the middle of your healing process, how do you think that will work?
I'm not referring to an "emergency/safety" situation.
I'm talking about after the "smoke has cleared", so to speak, and you are FINALLY able to begin to really heal.
If you feel like you're stumbling around in the dark, you sort of are. You are like a seed that has been planted - there is NO side-door, or "quick fix" to the healing process. The only way to true healing is THROUGH.
Many people have said they just "got over" traumatic events in their lives; but if you look closer, can you see the where the trauma shows up, unexpectedly? Do they? Often not.
They just keep going around that proverbial tree, over and over, ending up right back where they always do.
I mean no judgment in this - people have the right to choose; but I have learned I cannot "hitch myself" to anyone (so to speak), that is continually going to end up wrapped around that "tree", again. I have finally learned how to grow; and I have spent enough time wrapped around that tree. Have you?
Have a good day, and be safe... #listen #ibelieveyou #doyouhear
*October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Please share this post, no matter what month it is, to help get the word out. The Victim has to make the choice - but, "What If..." they read something you sent them, and it just "clicks"?
*I share a "What If..." post on the first Monday, of every month, and I would love the opportunity to share YOUR "what ifs". Please send your "What If..." ideas to Connie J... - email@example.com; or through Ozer, at the website or email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
