Healing

I found these great words today on another blog:

“Healing may not be so much about getting better,
as about letting go of everything that isn’t you
– all of the expectations, all of the beliefs –
and becoming who you are.”

  1. Very beautiful. The abuse and the damage it did to us is not truly us. The photo is beautiful and is a wonderful match for the words. Thank you.

    I wish this kind of healing for you, for us all.

  2. Thanks everyone. I wish this kind of healing for all of us as well.

    @ Kate, I’m glad you like the photo – it’s one I took when in Cambodia last year. 🙂

  3. Yes, nature is a wonderful metaphor for accepting who you are, isn’t it? Trees can be knarly or assymetrical or whatever and it just gives them character and makes them more beautiful. I think that survivors are beautiful in the same way for all the ways we have found healing out of pain.
