All of us will experience challenges and obstacles in life. The resistance of acknowledgement of pain only prolongs our suffering.
To process any feeling, we must identify the emotion. Once we identify the emotion, we can begin to understand the reasons or the core issue underneath the distress. As we invest time into ourselves, the pain begins to dissipate.
The prioritization of self aids in the healing process. By not choosing ourselves, we create cyclical patterns. There is no growth.
Once pain is identified, we have the ability to discard the burden. We no longer bear the weight. Freedom is obtained.
