Healing Is long baths, bath bombs, pizza and too much wine.
It’s skipping work, impulse buying and late nights.
It’s puffy eyes, cigarettes and razor blades.
healing Is a process but almost never the same way as our physical wounds
You see the bleeding stop, you see a scab form and when the scab falls off, it all starts to lighten with every passing month
But emotional healing isn’t quite the same, You never really get over it, you adjust, learn to live around it, cover it and fiddle your way through without drawing attention to it.
yeah, you can come so far and work so hard but it can all fall back without any warning.
Some days, the hurt is so distant to me it’s like it didn’t ever happen.
Other days, it’s screaming in my throat, demanding to be felt.
Healing is REAL and we are healing everyday, it just doesn’t look like it.
