It's hard to take the first step without knowing the outcome, especially within a personal struggle. You've already suffered so much, what if you make it worse? What if you make a mistake? The truth is you will never know until you try. We can keep doing the same thing over an over again, or we can boldly step onto our true path and then wait for the next step to be revealed.
Think about life as a path down a mountain. There is a series of switchbacks where you move in opposite directions, but you eventually get where you need to go. There are no backward steps in life, only switchbacks. Every step is better than standing still.
Healing Words is an ongoing series with the intention of once a day shifting focus away from suffering and onto healing. Healing is a daily practice of listening to your inner voice and turning pain into purpose.
Please feel free to share words that have helped you heal or your thoughts on these healing words.
