To stop telling the "story"?
Meant I would be facing the feelings.
Meant I would learn to live in acceptance of what "is" and "was" vs trying to create my own version of "what should be".
Meant letting go of the idea that others "could have" or "should have" done something different to make the story have a different ending.
Meant choosing to live in conscious awareness of when I was using "story" to avoid my reality, my "now".
Meant acknowledging that I was powerless and a victim then.
Meant grieving the loss of the life I did not have, do not have, will not have because of the story.
Meant acknowledging that I was no longer powerless and no longer a victim.
Meant finally "getting" what the serenity prayer means...
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
The courage to change the things I can
The wisdom to know the difference
Meant that I was no longer sacrificing my todays and tomorrows to those who took my past.
Meant that I was finally free.
