Healing can be such a difficult thing, but it starts by making the choice to heal. That doesn't mean forgetting what happened to you. It means allowing your Self to fully feel the emotions that you experience when remembering or when dealing with situations that come up from time to time, without resorting to ways to stop it, like drinking, drugs, etc. It's when we try to bury them that they cause us problems; these emotions are always trying to surface. And they surface at the most trying times: in relationships, with your work, all aspects of your life. Ky, when we are struck with negative emotions, it's our Inner Self telling us we are out of alignment with Who We Really Are and what we really want. When we feel negative emotions about something, it's a message that is coming from our Inner Self, a message that says: I don't want this in my life. So go for relief. You're paddling upstream with what you want instead of flowing downstream toward it. Start with where you're at right now. Write what you feel and the emotions it's causing you. Then write things that are about helping you to get relief. It might look something like this: "I hate my life." (upstream) "I hate what happened to me." (upstream) "I would rather die than live like this." (upstream) Now begin to find some relief: "I already survived the worst of it." (downstream) "I'm no longer being abused, and that's a very good thing." (downstream) "I don't really want to die, I just want to be out of pain and feel good." (downstream) And keep going. Keep finding relief in your thoughts, because right now, it's your thoughts that are keeping you in this dark place. You CAN do this, Ky, because you already dealt with the worst of it. As for your mother having cancer, if it feels rights, be there for her in a supportive role, but ONLY do what you are comfortable doing. You can judge that by the emotions you feel about it. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
