It became clear to me I needed to step out and go for a walk. I listened to my inner voice guiding me and went for that walk.
I began sobbing and sat down and wrote down exactly how I was feeling and by the time I had finished I felt a sense of calm.
Being human means we often have unresolved pain wounds which can be triggered by all sorts of things. In my experience they can be triggered in conversations that are often not directly related to the pain. I have found that stepping away from conversations with others at these times and listening to my inner voice, or writing my feelings down helps me gain an understanding of myself and what is happening with me. Writing is a powerful healing tool.
The added bonus from me getting to know myself and being more self aware is that sometimes I can recognise when others are triggered too. At these times I can often respond to them with compassion rather than reacting to my own issues. Sometimes I do this well… other times not.
My life is a work in progress where I do the best I can to live in the moment.
My wish is by sharing both my vulnerabilities and my strengths that I will help others to embrace their own personal healing journey.
Thank you for being here.
