Healing is a messy business, and it sure isn’t pretty. In the words of SwanWaters team member Carrie:

Very few of us can afford Eat, Pray, Love style healing.

She makes a valid point!

Healing gets hard. It is complicated, pulling your hair out frustrating, crying through your nose messy and you’ll think your head is going to explode confusing. And while you go through all that, you have dishes to wash, bills to pay, kids to take to soccer practice, dogs to give a bath… you name it.

When healing gets hard, how can you make things more manageable? Here are some resources to help.
