Pulling Back the Layers
I was hurting and in pain and wanted to disappear into the depth of depression and darkness that encompassed my heart.
Yet, I had to move forward. I could not stay in this holding spot forever.
But how did I begin to heal?
I wasn’t able to do it on my own. I also knew that I did not want to bury my hurt and pain the way I had years earlier. I needed to deal with this pain.
I had to accept that at least some of my depression was suppressed anger.
So, I sought out counseling. I participated in individual and group counseling sessions that were vital to my healing.
By working the programs and doing the work that was required, I began to slowly pull back the layers.
However, healing did not happen overnight.
