From Twitter that needs sharing here too ❤
Anyone who claims healing from abuse is about being positive every day – is deluded.
Grieving is a huge part of healing.
It takes a long time.
Amen!! Some people spew positivity in such a way that it screams "shut up and get over it!"
Absolutely right! The 'shut up and get over it' brigade, need to shut up themselves.
The responses, were very positive, very thankful and it was very validating to many.
You need to grieve, you need to feel the emotions, you need to have self sorrow, and process it all – otherwise it stays within you.
Down the track, you can become more positive.
But not before you are ready.
