Healing begins when you know it’s a long way ahead, so you decide to take it one step at a time. Sometimes even one breath at a time.
Healing begins when you believe some things aren’t meant to be.
Healing begins when you’re hopeful even if you’re walking in the dark.
Healing begins when there’s no shame of sharing your real feelings with people who honor the hardships you’ve been through.
Healing begins when you embrace sadness, and accept that it’s a huge part of life. When we let go of expectations and don’t judge the way we feel.
Healing begins when we listen to others and realize we’re all in this together. When we spread the lessons we’ve learnt from this journey.
Healing begins when you accept that you can’t be strong all the time. When you try to keep that smile on your face, because you know it’s your weapon through this long journey.
Healing begins when you have the courage to say, “I’m not okay…but I want to be.” When you follow the trail that your loved ones left behind until it becomes your path.
Healing begins when your heart memorizes the sentence, “It’s okay not to be okay.” And repeats it to you through your darkest hours.
