The beginning of healing is admitting what happened to you and how it has affected you. Until you are able to embrace reality, your past will continue to unconsciously control your thoughts, feelings, and relationships. It takes great courage to move beyond denial and disassociation and the ensuing healing will bring you great life. As you make the choice to embrace the memories you may have been avoiding and, with them, the precious wounded parts inside you open new doors to move into healthy relationships, peace of mind, and joy. The path is a challenging one but there is great support available for the odyssey.
