“Your life is your story. Write well. Edit often.” -Susan Statham
We don’t get to choose how our stories begin.
There is a time though when we realize that we get to author what comes next for us.
To do so, we often must engage in the courageous work of editing the past – which I believe is possible through EMDR therapy.
We have the power to reprocess memories, so that the meaning we have assigned to our experiences is re-written.
Instead of worthless, we become able to see the evidence of our worth. Instead of unlovable, we see that we are and have always been precious. Instead of bad and to blame for what happened, we see that we were young and powerless – and that we are now adults and powerfully able to choose our next chapter.
