Maybe We Don’t Heal By Convincing Ourselves That Someday, The Pain Will Fade

Maybe We Don't Heal By Convincing Ourselves

Maybe we don’t heal by convincing ourselves that someday, the pain will fade; that we’ll return to our former selves and reclaim the life we used to have. Maybe we heal when we accept that it’s okay to never go back; when we stop trying to use the broken pieces to rebuild the old picture, and instead, create a new one. Maybe we heal by affirming that even with this pain, we can craft a life that gives us meaning; that even when there are storms that flood our hearts, we can learn how to swim; that when night falls, we can learn to create our own light. Maybe healing means trusting that no matter how many times we have to recreate ourselves and redirect our path, we will end up where we’re meant to be.
