I’m realising that the most powerful form of healing is sharing our stories and being believed. It’s like acknowledgment heals a little every time. The healing comes from you understanding that you are not to blame.
When you share you open up a little space in your heart and you start to trust when someone just listens and doesn’t offer an opinion. The beauty of sharing is you may find someone who needs to hear that healing is possible.
It destroys the messages the abuser sends to you. It untangles the web of deceit that they weave. It sends the message that I am who, I am and I want to live my life my way.
