Make Peace With Your Past
I bled all my life up until I was in my early 40's (according to Iyanla Vanzant). My choices, my emotions, and my behavior were all stained by the wounds of my past. Food, alcohol, and drugs were all a part of my choices to drown the hurt and the pain, but, eventually, I realized that none of these delusional bandages worked. Besides, my children were getting older and they started speaking the truth to my face; that's quite a rude awakening when you want to stay in denial. It was not only denial that kept me in the dark, though. I didn't want to feel the pain again, and I knew this was exactly where I had to go. Eventually, I did go back to feel that pain. It was bloody hard! but the biggest reason I went back was for my children, pure and simple, and a little bit for myself.
In order to go back and make peace with your past, you need a reason--a BIG reason to want to heal the pain of your past. This big reason will also help you endure the healing process. Whenever I wanted to give up, whenever it felt like I couldn't endure the pain anymore, I went back to the thoughts of my children and how I wanted to be as a mom.
