Every word a mindfull moment of pure focus. A reliefgiving moment when all those dark flashbacks dissolve. Writing is my guiding light out of the dark.
Hiding away from the world in your own safe haven may not take away the thing you fear, however, it may give you a moment of rest and relief which might be exactly what your body needs. So hide away, rest and refuel your energy – it is a vital part of your healing journey.
If those you called friends were absent when you were drowning in despair, fill your heart with gratitude without them in your life as your zest for life slowly returns. Those who stayed with you when you shattered into a million pieces, showed you what truly matters in life.
No need to hide your sadness or numb your roaring fear. Own how you feel and sooth that raging insecurity.
Who hurt you so bad it brought you to your knees and shattered your sense of security into a million pieces?
Who stole the joy from your eyes, tore the passion from your words and ripped the very zest for life from your body?
More importantly, how did you manage to get back up again?
One moment at a time. You are doing the very best you can. Give yourself a break, go slower and look for things that give you relief.
You are not doomed to a life in misery and sadness just because you were abused once, twice or even a thousand times. It is never too late, you are never too broken and it is never hopeless – eventually you can find ways to have fun and enjoy life again, and then you can rebuild your life around new, joyful memories.
The nourishing mud is of beautiful value to the lotus flower. Use your challenging experiences as your nourishing mud from which you can rebuild your strength.
No matter how badly your body was treated in your past, your heart still beats for you.
No matter how long you have hated yourself – your soul still loves you unconditionally. You were born this way for a reason. In a society that profits from your insecurities, dare to love yourself unconditionally.
It doesn’t matter how many times you break down and fall, what matters is that you get back up again. Each time you manage to get back up, you start from a new, stronger place.
