Healing takes time.
Healing from what? you might ask...
Healing from what you’ve been doing for years and you’ve only just realized is destructive.
Healing from the memories that are preventing you from going on.
Healing from the voices and the thoughts, always telling you you’re not enough and you’ll never be.
Healing from those feelings of inadequacy, uncomfort, apprehension - slowly corroding you from the inside and leaving you with a body that’s held together by skin but is completely empty inside.
Healing from the pain you suffered every time you put yourself into other people’s hands. Hands that didn’t take care of you. Hands that taught you the only one who can take care of you is yourself.
Healing comes with time
Healing comes with practice
Right now, even a simple:
would be enough.
