Going Through To Get Out Of...




When I began to use "symptoms" of distress to guide my healing journey is when I finally began to heal. By beginning to use over reacting or shutting down as indicators of emotional healing to be done I was finally able to go through the pain to get past it. I was able to stop the bleeding vs just changing the band aids that came with managing, coping and surviving one day to the next. I began to see the light instead of living in the darkness that had consumed me for years. ~SusanKs

Susan, I'm looking forward to this new blog and what it will throw up, and I absolutely love your picture: out of the tunnel, into the light; and ahead comes the next dark arch, just in sight - but it looks smaller and manageable, the light behind that one is visible. having come through the first one, it will be child's play to negotiate the second. this is a wonderful metapher in picture format!

Hi Angie and thank you for sharing the journey! The picture is a good representation of the path I've followed - I'm glad you like it! And yes! Once I learned what I needed to learn on the first leg the rest was really just practice!
