All the things that I came to unearth during this journey were always there just didn’t know how to deal with them. I wasn’t sure which of the issues I had to deal with. I had to be honest. Honest about issues I had lied to myself about for years just to ease the pain. You know exactly what I am talking about. Things that bring you pain and shame and so you pretend they didn’t happen or alter the way that they happened so that they don’t hurt as much. I had to air out all the dirty laundry.
Unfortunately, #SheHeals isn’t a life reset button but it has changed me in ways that really matter. It has altered the way my mind works. I am more aware of the glitches in my system and now I actively try to overturn the negative thoughts that try to pollute my mind. For example, when a situation starts to drag me to a dark corner, I counter the dark thoughts with positive affirmations and thoughts of gratitude. The challenge came at a great time when I was at a turning point in my life. #SheHeals in conjunction with my spiritual purge have birthed a new me and I’m excited to get to know her. She’s showing a lot of promise.
