“Sometimes memories sneak out of my eyes and roll down my cheeks.” -Unknown
Some days the grief or the pain just won’t stay where we’ve put it – shoved down deep, dismissed as something that happened a long time ago or something that really shouldn’t be such a big deal.
But it is a big deal. It is our story, our history.
If unprocessed and tangled up in distorted negative beliefs about ourselves, it can secretly and stealthily influence how we see today, the choices we make, and even what degree of joy and love we are able to feel.
Healing our life stories is possible. Sometimes there will be days when the tears still come, but without the distortions the pain isn’t so searing and so terrifying. We know it will subside, and that we are free to create a new, brighter and warmer kind of future.
