The path to healing becomes a personal choice, one you piece together yourself, gluing the fragments together and making it whole again. It’s within us to explore and draw upon our inner resources to heal. Some of these wounds however are embedded so deeply, doing so becomes a difficult task.
Surgeons create incisions in the body, but they can’t order the wound to heal.
It’s through our internal fortitude the healing process begins. It paves the way towards self-discovery, opening the door to our inner harmony.
The imprint of our childhood experiences becomes a powerful ally.

The Need To Heal
Just a few decades ago, domestic matters weren’t discussed openly, especially the hidden issues of abuse, neglect, violence, abandonment, along with other related matters.
Today, society is a lot more aware of their existence.
Tragic is the innermost and safest of sanctuary’s society depends on, which can at times become the most dangerous.
These are the silent issues which takes its toll on the young victims.
They grow up with internal wounds, they carry them around like a heavy burden on their shoulders.
Some will never get over their trauma, as they’ll appear at the most inopportune times to haunt them.
Then there are those who are brave enough to face these demons, to confront them, then channel themselves towards healthy successful relationships.
When Love Becomes A Venom
How many hearts have been broken, experienced the disappointment and the pain in the name of love.
It invades the lives from all walks of life, regardless of social status, wealth, race, or creed. No one looks forward to suffer that pain.
To heal a broken heart, to pick up the pieces of the shattered hopes and dreams, suffering from the betrayal.
The existence of enduring a broken self-image, reliving the haunting nightmares, the violation on one’s being, spirit, and soul.
The most traumatic violation is experiencing the pain from those who are designated to provide a nurturing environment.
From those who are granted, entrusted to their care, hidden in the guise of love.
Recovering From Grief
The sudden loss of a loved one can be the most devastating. At times, the opportunity to bid their last and final farewell is lost. It becomes a substance of fate.
There is however a sense of relief the suffering is over, when it comes to an end. We want them to hang on, only for our own selfishness.
At one point and time in everyone’s life, grief becomes a reality from a loss of a loved one.
Dealing With Guilt
We all make wrong turns, wrong decisions, wrong choices. We all make mistakes so it’s how we treat and recover from them.
This is the human condition which not even the saintliest of the saints, hasn’t experienced.
We all stumble, we fall, and get back up again. We dust ourselves off and then get on the horse of life.
Relationships become threatened, lost, or are innocently and unconsciously sacrificed.
Wearing guilt on your mind and in your heart, you invite negative vibrations which digs you deeper into the mire.
Take a look in the mirror, at those sad eyes, the window of your soul, then tell yourself this isn’t the end.
Unfulfilled Dreams And Hopes
Living out your dreams, riding on the wings of hope, knowing things won’t always work out.
Then one day, you’ll wake up and realize your dreams are far from materializing, while languishing in the attempts to pursue them.
In the meantime, real opportunities, time, space, and life passes you by.
Realize that hope, especially the false type, can lead to disappointment. When all your hopes become dashed, you’re left with nothing.
The Path To Healing
Healing Isn’t That Complex
Our environment, the planet we live in is in a desperate need of healing, this from the abuse that’s inflicted upon it. We have become reckless, negligent, and lack respect.
Personally, we all at one time or another have felt the pain of suffering. Be it physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, or material.
There are avenues of healing that’s currently open to you. Options include seeking comfort from related groups, friends, or professionals. Yet the choice to heal begins with you.
It’s important to acknowledge the pain, to recognize the cause, to integrate the fragmented pieces, and then be willing to carry it forward to the next step to become whole again.
Healing extends beyond the physical state when one hurts deeply. The spirit and the soul takes the grunt of the pain.
It’s a pain which can hauntingly attack during the dark of the night.
It can fill a once loving heart with angst, ravage a once healthy active mind and the body beneath, marking its vengeance on an once beautiful and graceful soul.
Blocks To Healing
The path to healing is often full of potholes. A path that’s covered with blockages, obstacles, where the healing process appears futile. It appears almost out of reach.
Impediments on this path includes apathy, denial, self indulgence, self absorption, addiction, blaming others, isolation, cynicism, withdrawal from society, loss of faith and trust.
The Need To Heal
Most often, we hurt those we love the most, usually unintentionally, but regardless, they bear the grunt of pain we cause.
This becomes a personal essay. It doesn’t however deny the importance of seeking out help when needed, when prompted.
It’s acknowledged we must want to surrender, to heal themselves. One has to know what needs healing, and are willing to accept the need to heal.
What most acknowledge is seeking external help at this point, can accelerate the process.
