Healing is sometimes long and treacherous. Sometimes it is exhausting.
The only thing is, if we avoid healing in our lives, it will come back up and bite us. Our body and our mind will work to get our attention and the more we avoid it, the more it will increase.
I know from experience that avoiding things in life, numbing and disconnecting will only take you down a path that isn't pretty. For me, it took me into a conversion disorder where I was paralyzed and almost on my last breath for good.
It isn't easy to heal, especially when you've been through trauma or child abuse or been molested and raped as a child. These experiences harm people in so many ways and to get your life back is an exercise in exhaustion at times. I know, I've been there.
Be real in our healing...
We just need to be honest with ourselves in our own healing and be real with what we are doing. Are we avoiding healing through various ways, or are we truly going in and doing what we need to be doing.
There are many ways to avoid healing and even if I tried to list all that I could, there would be many more. I think at a subconscious level we understand when we are avoiding what it is that we need to do, but often times it doesn't rise to a level of consciousness and awareness.
So, how do you avoid healing or how have you done this in the past?
What are your ways that you numb and disconnect, rather than take a long hard look at what is truly taking place on your healing journey.
