Healing

Healing is a decision.

Healing takes deliberate and intentional efforts.

Yes, healing takes time but what matters most is what you do during that time.

When building a house in a location that experiences a lot of flooding, you cannot prepare the house to only withstand the dry season.

& If you’re building during the dry season, you have to allow your memory of the rain to dictate your actions.

I decide to heal on a daily basis.

It isn’t an easy decision most of the time.

Usually it’s the hardest thing I find myself doing…but it’s necessary.

I’ve tried carrying the hurt.

I’ve lived through ignoring the pain.

I’ve learned it never goes away.

Healing is a decision.

Decide to heal today.

Healing is self-preservation.

Healing is Self-Love.

Healing is my love language.

I have attempted to hold on to pain while praying for release.

I have been stranded in the middle of life with resentment, hurt and past experiences shackled to my ankles.

I have almost drowned.

Healing is self-preservation.

Healing is Self-Love.

I love myself enough to let my hurt go.

I love myself enough to forgive those who hurt me.

I love myself enough to forgive myself.

I woke up this morning with full intention to become a better version of myself.

Healing was the first thing on my agenda.

I prayed for peace and for a greater understanding of those around me.

Healing is not the easiest process I’ve ever dedicated myself to but it was the easiest decision I’ve ever had to make.

After drowning in emotions only I can control, I decided that healing was my only way of survival.

Healing is a decision.

Decide to heal today.
