You Can’t Bury your Pain
There comes a time in our lives when it’s time to let go…
But we can ONLY let go when the time is right.
We cannot bury our pain in some neat little box that is kept out of sight & pretend it is gone.
Out of sight is NEVER out of mind. (or body or soul for that matter.)
Out of sight is never out of mind when it comes to our Pain
If we try to hide from the pain, whatever that pain may be, life will find countless ways to remind us that we are hiding.
Because hiding from our pain simultaneously blocks our joy and we are not on this earth to live half-heartedly.
So we need to acknowledge our pain, sit with it, feel it, be in it without judgement.
Without being a victim.
Just being. Completely.
This takes Courage. Vulnerability. Patience. Compassion. Presence.
This is Self-Love.
And then suddenly, when you least expect it, observing and feeling without judgement, it starts to transform.
That is the magic of unconditional love.
And one day, you will finally be ready to let it go.
And then you MUST let go!!
Even if it is terrifying.
Because it will be replaced with an indescribable peace and joy.
You will never be the same.
You will always have the scars. A reminder of how life’s struggles shook you to the depths of your being….
But in those depths, emerged an even deeper sense of love, strength, understanding and compassion.
That is what life is all about.
So wherever you are in your journey, I wish you courage, compassion and loving patience with yourself.
Because you are worth it
I wrote this 5 years ago & it came up as a memory on FB yesterday.
It was a time when I was ready to finally let go of whatever I was still holding onto from our home invasion & from breaking
my back and living in chronic pain and probably a whole LOT more!
I can’t remember writing the post above & can hardly even remember who I was & what I was feeling back then, as I’ve transformed so much.
So please know that if you are feeling sad, overwhelmed, Frustrated, scared, angry, disappointed or even hopeless, there is hope.
You can live with less stress & more joy!!
If I could do it, so can you. And I can show you how.
I hope these words help you somehow today too.
