Ever went where the wounds don’t hurt anymore? Then you know that each time you come back, they hurt even more. Never pretend you don’t have them. Because in fact, we all do. Before they heal, they have to be acknowledged and honored. Real healing comes from understanding how they came to be and how we are keeping them alive. Only then, what it takes for them to close will become clear. We never really go forward unless the lessons are complete. And they are never complete with our wounds still bleeding.
