I am learning that when I focus on other’s emotions, I am not only justifying their behavior but I’m also neglecting my own self.
“I help her retell her traumas, help her detail them and make sense of them because I know that telling our stories heals us.”
I have found that writing has given me a voice. It’s not so much about who reads some of those things or whether it gets to the person it’s intended to at times, but it is liberating and healing.
Great writing, thank you for sharing.
