It has been a long journey of healing for me. I have experienced a traumatic event that will always be with me. The weight of it on my shoulders has felt unbearable at times. But eventually, I chose to face it and trust the process of healing.
Through therapy, writing, and talking to supportive people in my life, I have been able to start putting the pieces back together – little by little. It has been an incredibly difficult path, filled with tears of sadness and moments of joy. I may never totally “get over” what happened but that’s OK. Each day is a reminder to me that although the journey might be hard at times, there is an opportunity for growth in every challenge.
The deep emotional pain has slowly grown into strength and resilience; something I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world. As I move forward out of the darkness into the light, I know that even when life pushes me down, I will stand back up again feeling grateful for every moment and every lesson learned along this brave healing journey.
