Healing is an Active Process
A lot of us are stuck in a vicious cycle.
So many of the people reading this right now are always getting over a person or a bad situation. So many of us are wondering why that bad energy is still present in our lives.
I've got some tough news—just because that person or situation is physically gone, doesn't mean your healing is finished.
When you pull out a splinter, a wound is going to remain. Just because the splinter is gone doesn't mean you're not going to bleed anymore.
Healing isn't about what you're moving on from—it's about what you're moving on to. Healing is about falling in love with progression. Healing is about becoming stronger.
Life doesn't get easier. The trail doesn't get less steep. In all honesty, you've got no control over the course of the trail at all.
There's one crucial factor you do have control over, though—you can become stronger. You can't shorten the trail, but you can become better equipped to handle it.
Healing isn't about making a bad thing disappear. We often think healing is just about removing the source of our pain, but, as many of you might have found, the best way to truly get over a bad person or situation is to find something better. It's to become stronger and to become wiser and move on to things you truly deserve.
Some of us expect healing to just fall into our laps. Some of us expect healing to come just because we feel we need it.
Let me ask you something—have you ever thought you needed strength? Have you ever thought you needed failure, and loss, and wisdom?
It's time to stop wishing your perfect life into existence. Healing is an active process. Healing requires a growth mindset, and it requires real change. Remember, you have certain responsibilities to yourself. You are responsible for preserving and bettering your mental and spiritual health. You owe it to yourself to hit the gym, and to work on your physical health.
I cannot stress this enough—healing is an active process. The only way to get stronger is to keep hiking up that uncomfortable path. The only way to become wiser is to trip and stumble and fall on your face.
Just because the path is lonely doesn't mean the path is wrong.
Many people avoid growth, because moving forward sometimes also means moving away from the people who matter most to us. Many people are stuck on the trap of external validation, and only work for the satisfaction of others.
Healing and waiting around are two different things. Remember, you are responsible for your own health. Want to achieve your goals and spread your vision?
It all starts with you.
