You can’t rush your healing. You can’t hide your pain. You can’t understand your misunderstanding all in one day. You can’t ignore the darkness, for it has its teaching. If you fall, and we all do, you just get back up, even if you are shaking, to face yourself once again. It turns out that I was always the monster at the end of the book.
Things may happen that cause your life to change in an instant where nothing is ever the same, yet life still goes on as we continue to live on this planet that is careening through space spinning on an axis.
We live through internal wars to emerge forged in fire. The trick is to remain soft yet strong. We survey the wreckage as we navigate the new day.
And we heal, one day at a time.
That is recovery. ✌🏻💜☀️
