Lifebegins45 shares her perspective of the mourning portion of healing.
She shared this link that breaks down 3 recognizable phases of healing/recovery.
There is one thing that I believe to be important to the healing process. There is no going back. I read many posts about those that want to go back to before the trauma. This would be ridiculous to me, I was 5 years old. I hardly remember before trauma. This put me in the position of simply asking, "Where am I now? Is there anything to go back to?" When I am asked my belief is to look for my new self, who I am now is important and matters. I survived a life changing experience, of course it changed me, it should. I choose now to make this new now better than ever.
A new Dawn, a new Me.
