For those of you who know intimately the pain of which I speak here, I want you to know that my heart is as broken for your pain as it is for mine. Please hear this: It’s easy to read something and want to compare our pain to others, but this is a dangerous game that can keep us stuck. Because our stories are all unique I would like to insist that we agree to honor one another with hearts of compassion and understanding. This is a safe space.
I also want to acknowledge that our healing journeys will be as unique as the individual traumas we experienced. I’m not here to offer a formula for healing. I am here to link arms with you and fight our battles together.
I hope that you will feel free to share whatever pieces of your story here that you would like. I want to hear about your pain – and your healing. I want to honor you – and your story.
And I want to know the real you. If it’s easier for you to do that privately, then please do email me. I would love to hear from you.
