Are you healing or hiding?

I’m super fired up today and this post contains some tough love. It seems like everywhere I look, someone is healing. Healing from a past relationship, childhood wounds, adulthood wounds. Life brings us so many opportunities to get hurt. Especially in matters of the heart. “Healing” is defined as “to make well or whole”. The thing about healing is that eventually, it’s over. The human body knows how to heal itself. So does the human spirit. Even a casual glimpse through history will reveal the incredible resilience we humans are capable of. Check out the life stories of people who’ve achieved great things, and you’ll find inspiring tales of overcoming obstacles and challenges, not of years spent healing.

I know the kinds of things that can happen when you’re out there dating and it can be so heartbreaking! I’ve dealt with painful breakups, being ghosted, and long spells of first dates (and no dates). I’ve heard it all AND gone through much of it firsthand. Here’s the thing; being jaded and snarky doesn’t serve you and it’s definitely not any fun. Honestly, when’s the last time you saw a bitter person and thought, “Wow, I can’t wait to hang out with them.” Probably never. If you’d like to leave bitterness behind, take a look at the things that have caused you so much pain and ask yourself what belief is at the root of it. Do you believe that men only want one thing?
