It’s very easy to constantly speak on the things that hurt us the most. Most of the time that, it’s a good thing and it can serve our healing.
However, I have caught myself in the past talking about my hurt as a story to just tell over and over again, because I am not quite ready to let go of it. Now here’s the deal, that’s okay if you aren’t ready to let go of the hurt, but you can’t sit in it, just pushing the replay button over a cup of coffee.
If you can’t release it yet, maybe it’s because there is something your pain is trying to tell you. Maybe it’s still around to help you heal from something deeper. When I feel the need to talk about what is hurting me I have to ask this question to myself, will this feed my healing?
Feed what heals.
