Staying stuck is painful.
Healing is painful.
But healing eventually ends and life begins.
But if you stay stuck you will suffer for longer before you even begin healing.
Postponing pain prolongs pain and keeps you stuck in limbo.
Going inwards is terrifying, but not as terrifying as the thought of looking back on your life and realizing you never truly lived.
I know you have already tried getting help only to be shut down or invalidated, and I am so sorry.
I promise I will never tell you emotionally-blocking bullsh*t like “you just need to let go of the past '' or “if you can’t change a situation then you need to accept it!”
There’s nothing wrong with your mindset or how you feel! You are not “playing victim” or “blaming” someone! Let’s make this the last year of your life that was stolen by abuse and confusion!
