“Change, like healing, takes time.” – Veronica Roth
The process of healing is usually a long and tiring one. It’s a process that gets put on the back burner and left alone to deal with at a later date.
The process of hurting is one that typically isn’t up to you, you get hurt you don’t choose to hurt. In a world of victim-blaming, it can be extremely easy to blame oneself for the hurt.
The process of bleeding can be a scary one, but what’s magical about our bodies is that they can heal themselves. They know what to do and how to do it to make sure that you are okay.
All of this to say, you have to heal from what hurt you to make sure you don’t bleed on those that didn’t cut you. No one wants to walk around with an open wound, you get to taken care of as soon as possible. So, why do we let our emotional or mental wounds gape open for so long?
We are all carrying around baggage. We all have scars from when we were cut, either literally or metaphorically. As humans, we all want the best for ourselves and those around us.
Make sure you heal because even if it’s not visible the hurt is real. The pain can be deep without being physical. Trust me when I say you do not want to bleed on the people that did not cut you. Don’t blame yourself or your younger self, simply heal.
