We need to take a proactive part in our healing journey. Self reflection and speaking our truth is the first step.
Part of our healing journey may be to accept that the love we once shared is no longer a part of our journey, that it will be irreplaceable, and yet, continuing to invite ourselves to experience happiness once again even if the journey now appears unlike what we had imagined.
It takes courage and grit to continue to move forward without the relationship/relationships that captured our heart. And, it is always our choice.
We might not have a choice as to how we are placed on a alternate path than where we were headed, but we have a choice as to how we respond. We can go kicking and screaming, or we can embrace the beauty of the new beginnings.
Speak your truth. Unpack the pain. Patiently process it all. Express your deepest disappointment. Journal. Talk to someone you trust. Practice whatever healthy self care practices nourishes your soul.
Repeat as often as needed.
If it resonates, sit in prayer/meditation. This is my greatest self soothing tool.
Mindfully, take another step forward.
Never place a time constraint on your healing. It is a lifelong process. And, we can experience joy and sadness simultaneously.
Welcome home to yourself.
Love and blessings,
