Where Healing Begins

Sometimes that’s all you need. Someone who gets it. A light in the darkness. Some empathy in a cold world. A little understanding of the chaos inside.” – JmStorm

Isn’t that what we all long for at times.

It hurts to be alone with all the chaos and the pain.

It feels too much to handle, and we don’t know where to turn.

But the kindness of someone who is simply there for us, can make all the difference.

All the difference in the world.

  1. I agree completely. I sometimes wonder if loneliness is one of the deepest hurts. It does seem like simply having someone who is there with you compassionately where you are allows pain or inner turmoil to be healed like nothing else. It can make it all feel okay, maybe it still hurts, but it’s okay. You’re okay.

    • I agree that loneliness is one of the worst pains in the world. And it’s especially true when you are with people who give off vibes of supporting or encouraging you, and who you know aren’t really there for you.
      In contrast, feeling understood and supported can make all the difference in the world. Yes, it still hurts but somehow the situation feels easier to bear.
      Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.

      • Yes, I am working through how to handle the people who are “there for me” but over and over just aren’t. It does make the pain of loneliness worse. It adds a lot of confusion, self doubt, and hurt to the situation. Especially when they tend to shift the blame to you as to why they aren’t there for you.

  2. I completely agree. In addition to the general loneliness of feeling unseen and unsupported, I think trauma induced loneliness/isolation can be helped by this outreach and support too. I feel like they are different maladies but the remedies are similar – connection to others. It’s fascinating to me that addiction also requires the same remedy (among others). ❤️

    • Yes, I find this interesting too. Feeling you can talk openly to to others, and that there are people in your life who like you, want to spend time with you, care about you, want to be there for you, and wont judge you … is so healing and life-giving. In contrast, an absence of these qualities is so destructive in a multitude of ways.
      Thanks for the comment blackacre!! Have a great day 🙂
