The Ups and Downs on the Road to Healing

The road to healing is full of bumps, potholes, and detours. Some days it feels as if I will never make it to my destination, and the effort is futile. I find myself exhausted by devastating setbacks and crushed by the weight of the baggage I carry.

As I continue to move forward despite the obstacles in my path, I find that no matter how small a step I take, it adds to the overall distance covered. Every inch is progress, and it all adds up in the end. Not every mile marker will come quickly, and I’m sure I will lose hope again, but only momentarily. I understand now that the road to healing is not linear, and the ups and downs are part of the journey.

Abuse is an unfortunate reality in this world and is more than physical assault. The invisible trauma we suffer can result in chronic illness, which is a relentless beast gnawing away at the soundness of mind. Education and support from others are vital in the healing journey.

  1. Healing… Life in general is like that. It can be good and bad, up and down, but I’ve seen there’s not a moment that God hadn’t known of or seen, I hope you find comfort to know if there is a Creator God, He lovingly watches over people as you and me. Take care, God bless 💖

  2. I find my wellbeing is like this: 1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 4 – 5 – 2 – 5 – 6 – 7 – 8 – 2 – 2 – 3 – 6 – 7 – 8- 9 – 2 – 2 – 2 -3 – 7 – 8 – and so on. No matter how bad it gets, it never goes back to square one because the more you know what is going on and develop strategies to cope, the more you can continue the lifelong healing journey.

    I share much with you Sara and send you healing energies.

  3. Healing to me is more of an intersection between the linear and what I call ‘the depth of now’ – what we bring with all our depth of experience to the present moment. How brave you are to try to see your situation in a new light by embracing it and sharing it with others so that they also feel less alone. Courage is living life from the inside out and I see a lot of courage in your words. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
