One way I like to reflect on my healing journey is to look back over my own writing. It gives me glimpses of how far I’ve come.
When abusers say, ‘You reap what you sow’ it means ‘you are the real cause of the abuse’. But is there truth to this old adage that abusers fail to see?
Many survivors buy into the idea that the process of forgiving and letting go also means never getting mad about the abuse again. Nothing could be less true
There are days when you think nothing would be more satisfying than stooping to their level. Please climb back up to that high road if you can manage…
Not allowing forgiveness to apply to ourselves is like holding a grudge against ourselves for getting wet in the rain.
How can you trust yourself now, when you have so often let yourself down?
Indulge me, and reflect on that for a second. What you are effectively asking me to do is forgive and forget the first 30+ years of my life.
I bet you did not know that today is Forgiveness Day! It is always a touchy subject, but one I think that we need to keep discussing on SwanWaters.
I a very happy to take some time today to talk about a personal experience on my healing Journey, as I gave my memories wings this weekend.
