Healing Old Wounds
A young woman sits alone sobbing, stuggles with unrelolved experiences/issues "wounds" from her past. Emotionally drained and exhausted and contemplates ending it all. Even with a great job, home, husband and children, she often feels worthless, lost and alone. Within she is full of unrelolved issues, anger, negative emotions and frustration. Although, efficient at work, an excellent mother and wife, (unconsciously) she finds ways to harm and destroy relationships with people that she loves and cares for the most (never really letting anyone get close to her). In an effort to cope, she has created masks, altered her character, shops, drinks, dabbles in soft drugs and involves herself in every organization or activity that she can find in an effort to get away from the lingering hurt, unresolved feelings of doubt, mistrust, disappointment and anger from "that past experience" that was never fully resolved or healed. As she sits alone desparate for answers, she suddenly realizes that the masks and all of her activities were not enough to ease the pain that she feels within and lives with each day.
Take time today to forgive and begin healing old wounds. We all need to heal past wounds and properly put an end to those painful experiences and events that continue to haunt us consciously and subconsciously.
Today, take a few moments to "let go" heal and properly bury an old wound from the past.
