I love my life.. with all it’s crazy ups and downs, I love my life.

Hozier | Take Me To Church

It’s going to take time, much more time than you’d like it to. It’s not that time heals all wounds but rather wounds need time to heal.

Your wounds are deep and complicated. They’ve spent years tearing you apart, keeping you up at night, and twisting you into less than you are.

It will take time. Don’t think about how little or how much. Dot worry about time, focus on healing. Use the time however short or long it takes to take care of yourself from the inside out.

Don’t stuff down your feelings. Don’t pretend to feel what you don’t feel. Be honest with yourself. Be real about your pain. You’ve suffered so much trying to hold it in all these years. Don’t suffer alone anymore. Don’t stay silent about what hurts. You don’t need to be ashamed of the scars you carry. You don’t need to hide your wounds ever again.

You can’t heal when you hide. You can’t recover when you pretend there is nothing to recover from. You can’t get help when you aren’t willing to ask for it. The process of healing requires your full participation. No one can fix you for you. You have to find the will to be healed, and to be helped.

It will take time. You will sway back and forth between who you’ve been and who you hope to be. You will cry a lot more than you’d like. You will find yourself afraid to reach into those awful moments and memories. The process of healing breaks you at times but always to make you whole in the places you’ve been broken.

It will be okay.
It will be okay.
It will be okay.

You deserve to heal.
You deserve to heal.
You deserve to heal.

Let today be the beginning of laying to rest everything that haunts you. Let today be the day you start to let the light into your pain. Let today be the day you see that your story didn’t end with what happened to you. Your story is still being written. Whatever dark things fill your past don’t have to be your present nor future.

We can’t move on until we make peace with what has kept us prisoners. We can’t make peace until we confront what chains us to the past and to pain.

I pray today with all my soul that you’ll no longer choose to run away, numb yourself, hurt yourself, or hate. I pray that today would be a day when you choose to go through your pain and accept the truth of the depth of hurt in your heart so you can begin to heal.

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness.

Lykke Li | No Rest For The Wicked

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.

Rumi (via feellng)

I will soothe you and heal you,
I will bring you roses.
I too have been covered with thorns.

Rumi (via art-and-fury)
