Sometimes we think the path to healing and deliverance from the pain we’ve experienced should be linear. We want to continue to progress steadily towards wholeness. The reality is that setbacks are inevitable in our healing journeys. What’s important is that we give ourselves grace when we stumble. I like to think of healing as the process of cleaning up a mess caused by some emotional trauma. It’s messy and there will be setbacks, but we must find the courage to get back up and keep moving.
Today, Kim is talking to us about some of the setbacks she has experienced in her healing journey.
In her first video, she talked about how difficult it was to come to terms with the abuse she experienced and trying to forgive her abuser so she could move forward with her life.
Then, in her second video she shared how the pent up anger affected her relationships with other people and kept her stuck for many years. She explained in her third video how shame haunted her for many years.
