Most survivors spend years (maybe decades) thinking about the past before we find the courage to tell someone about it. When the brain continually focuses on the trauma from an abusive past, it just makes the pain worse. It’s the major cause of our suffering.
That’s why to heal from the past you have to believe you can heal.
Yes, feeling the pain, sitting with it, acknowledging it, allowing it to express itself in a healthy way, and releasing it from your body is one of the first steps on the healing journey. Until you do that, you’ll never completely heal.
However, you can’t remain in this step forever. At some point, your heart will let you know it’s time to move forward to the next step on your healing journey. If you don’t, fear will take over and try to convince you that you’ll never heal. To conquer this fear, you must believe healing is possible.
And that’s my question for you today. Do you really, honestly believe you can heal?
We can never go back and undo the trauma from our abusive past. The damage is done. But you can move forward to the next step on your healing journey. You do that by choosing to heal.
Everyone’s healing journey is unique. We all move forward at a different pace. Some steps on your healing journey will come easily for you, and you’ll accomplish them quickly. Others will take weeks or months to work through. Everyone is different.
The best way to defeat your fears and continue moving forward is to use your own life as proof. Look back to where you were a year ago, five years ago, ten years ago. You’ve come a long way, haven’t you?
Yes, you can heal! Just look at your life. That’s all the proof you’ll need.
