Everyone, at some point, has to go through an emotional healing process.
Once you decide you’re done pretending everything is good enough in your world, you’re ready to move past the first stage of emotional healing.

As resourceful as it is at finding distractions, your brain keeps reminding your that your pain is real.
It’s up to you to commit to the healing process — even though it exacerbates the pain for a while.
