It’s hard dealing with the work that needs to be done to grow and change, because letting go of our pain and stories involves a lot of confronting feelings that we stuff down.
So we may wonder, why even try?
But as we let go of the trauma, we feel liberated. And it’s true, it’s painful to be numb, despite we think numb means feeling nothing. It’s painful to be flat and not enjoy the one life we have at this time now. Why waste the present?It’s our only point of power to make change.
