Some days I don’t write because I’m hurting.
And that’s been the case for the past 12 days.
Other days I don’t write because I’m so overwhelmed by emotions and thoughts which I force myself do deal with.
So please, excuse my silence, because during these moments, I have no desire to go on.
The pain drains me and pulls me away from confronting my demons and the pen.
I’m so grateful to those who remind me that I am not alone, that they too, are hurting and healing. I truly appreciate you all for reaching out.
During this time of silence, I’ve learned that healing is such a painful process.
Opening up to yourself, and identifying your own toxic traits which you’ve force fed yourself and having no one else to blame but yourself is daunting.
Learning to not only identify your toxic habits, but to make a conscious decision to unlearn them and actually follow through is a mammoth task.
But I owe it to myself and the people whom I wish to be surrounded by.
To those healing and hurting:
Remember, a healing journey is not an overnight stay; it is a process, and it’s often painful.
It’s a journey worth working through, feel free to pull to the side, as often as needed to care for your wounds, healing your heart with other broken parts of you is okay.
