Healing is possible

"Your trauma makes you stronger" is such a bullshit narrative. No, most of the times it doesn't. It gives you unpleasant memories and irrational fears.

But that doesn't mean that healing is not possible.

Maybe I'm writing this to myself, in belief that all of this is temporary. All the pain and all the suffering. Maybe sometimes we have to go through shit to learn a few lessons. Maybe sometimes we learn nothing and only develop PTSD.

But that doesn't mean that healing is not possible.

My healing is not linear, I don't think anybody's is. Sometimes I take a step a day and randomly go 10 steps back the other day but that's okay. This is not a pattern, after a while you take lesser steps backwards. I'm hurt and the first thing I need to do is to accept that I'm hurt. Maybe this is the reason I can't focus on my job or maybe I've just given up. All I know that this is temporary.

I'm hurt and I'm taking every possible step towards healing. I just need to realize that I can't expect instant gratification. It is a time consuming process. I only need to focus on getting on a neutral plain from my rock bottom. My goal is not to fly but I want to able to walk without drowning. This will take a long time and I accept that. It will be difficult and I will face set backs but all I need to remember is that,

Healing is possible.
