Everyone’s experiences are unique, and as we share our stories, our perspectives, our take on world building and character development, we actually expand other people’s understanding. Your story matters because it is uniquely your own, and no one can tell it the way you can. No one has your voice. No one has your thoughts. No one has your experiences, dreams, hopes, and fears. Never be ashamed to tell your story!!
Don’t be afraid to take the journey, even if there is no one else beside you. Be brave enough to walk through the storm.
“Deep in your wounds are seeds, waiting to grow beautiful flowers.”
“Turn your wounds into wisdom.”
“NEVER be ashamed of the scars that life has left you. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed, you endured the pain and God has healed you.”
Do you ever really heal from the hurt, pain and shame of things that happened to you as a child? I have wrestled with this for much of my life. I’ve asked myself many times, “What does true healing look like when you have been so deeply scarred?” Just recently I had a transformative breakthrough and I feel like the weight of the world has been lifted off my shoulders. The chains that kept me in bondage to my past have finally been broken. In order for me to get to this point I had to let down my walls, trust, speak my truth, all my truth and stop being afraid. I know it is harder said than done but once I was brave enough to vulnerable and let the pain out, I finally feel free.
What are you holding back?
What is stopping you from finding that freedom you deserve?
Healing comes when you hold nothing back and let go of all the hurt and pain you’ve held onto your whole life.
The act of forgiveness is beyond powerful. Forgiveness allows you to see people for all they are, and see yourself for who you are, and through this clear understanding of humanity and this new form awareness, you can make the decision to let go or to let in. It is about letting go of the resentment you feel when thinking about the person that hurt you, it is about letting go of the fears you feel inside when you took the wrong turn, it is about believing that the decision(s) you make to help yourself grow are the right ones. In order to truly forgive someone else, you need to forgive yourself.
