It is what it is

It’s OK if you thought you were over it, but then it hits you all over again.

It’s OK if, sometimes, you still fall apart, even if you thought you were starting to heal.

Trauma is like that.

The shock may start to fade –

But the memories still haunt you.

You’re not completely free.

This doesn’t mean you’re weak.

It’s a battle like no other.

Recovery is messy, and there isn’t a timeline

    • You are so right. It is a very difficult thing to process and heal from. Not easy at all to understand since the subconscious mind takes over and seems to do its own thing. It requires such self-compassion and patience. Thanks for adding your thoughts here.
