To transform from a caterpillar takes time, work and a cocoon…

I wish there was a magic formula I could share with you about how to change.

Change is never easy.  When there is a lot of hurt, pain, and betrayal this is even more difficult.

If the situation{s} hasn’t been dealt with and there is anger, the layers of pain can build until depression is all encompassing.

All I can say, is that if this is you {and as I’ve shared it was definitely me} than this change takes time.

This change takes self-discovery and self-honesty.

The change is not going to happen overnight.  However, don’t give up.  Keep working at it.  When you feel that nothing is working, remember that the changes may be so small, so minute and so deep down that they are not visible to the naked eye.  However, if you keep working at it then in time you will notice change.

Above all remember that change comes with God’s help.
