My friend spoke to me about writing a weekly article for the blog, which i thought was a really good idea. With the first piece which i find genuinely inspiring & real, i think i have no doubt i made a good decision. Hope you enjoy it as much as i did! :)
I need to heal, need to forgive, need to move on with my life. So for me this is more than a story this is a healing process; a process for all my wounds to heal and for me to finally leave the past in the past. I have been trying to heal for as long as I can remember now, but there have been so many obstacles in my life that have made this process long. I think about what I have been through and my heart cries for love, understanding and peace.
In my heart I know I need to be a better person, a better friend, a better wife, daughter, but most importantly a better mother. Deep down I know in order for me to do this I need to forgive those who have hurt me and move on with my life. The first stage of my healing process is acceptance. I need to accept all that has been done to me, and what I have done to others.
Second stage is adjustment. I need to adjust to my environment, I need to adjust to the life I created for myself and be happy. Thirdly I need to believe that I was put on this earth for something great. I need to believe that I am going to be a great person, nobody wants to believe thier main purpose in life is to suffer.
Building my self confidence is going to be a hard one but it's something I have to do if I ever want to survive. Lastly if it's not already obvious I need to forgive and also be forgived, because without forgiveness I can never defeat my demons and move on.
To be continued next week... come back :)
I find that it's a piece many people will be able to relate to, and I can't wait for the continuation next week :) I genuinely cannot understand why she would want to remain anonymous, like i told her 'her writing is worth claiming' to be honest, i'm not sure i write that well. lol
