Trauma 😌

This is the big, scary truth about trauma: there is no such thing as “getting over it.” The five stages of the grief model mark universal steps in learning to accept loss, but the reality is, in fact, much bigger: a significant life disruption leaves a new normal in its wake. There is no “back to the old me.” You are different now, full stop.😌

This is not a wholly negative thing. Healing from trauma can also mean finding new strength and joy. The goal of healing is not a papering-over of changes to preserve or present things as usual. It is to acknowledge and wear your new life warts, wisdom, and all-with courage.”

Broken Soul 🀐

I find peace in the darkness, But long to feel the light. Its warmth down upon me, Its aura soft and bright.🀐

The light captivates my mind, With dreams of gentle skies. It reaches through my darkness, And strips away all ties.🀐

My darkness fights against it, This bringer of the light. But it fails to pierce its brilliance, And fades into the night.🀐

Freedom has finally found me, And I respond with open arms. I embrace its vivid glow, And all its hidden charms.🀐

The weight has finally lifted; I genuinely am now free. Of all my dark baggage, That had a hold of me.🀐

Do you understand 🌼

Do you know how it feels to have a heart that won’t heal to pretend that you’re happy when that’s not how you feel when inside you are bleeding where no one can see and your soul keeps on yearning for what just cannot be πŸ˜”

Do you understand how it feels to be a part of a whole to awake each new morning with an ache in your soul to pretend to yourself that you are healing up well yet your eyes keep on showing what your mouth will not tell πŸ˜”

Do you know what it’s like to be dressed in a smile to exist among mankind be it just for a while as your eyes keep on searching for a face in the crowd and inside you are bleeding and screaming out loud πŸ˜”
