Reflecting on the time of my life wherein I started this blog. The vast progress and growth I’ve made as a person since then.
We as rational beings are taken captive by none but that which we believe has taken us captive. And it is only by time and the right circumstances that the beliefs we want to change, the ones harmful to us, become makeshift.
Until then, keep breathing and intend to see things differently. Feel things differently. I wish I could say there is promise that one can successfully immediately change beliefs about themselves by mere will and intention but experience has shown me it is not true. Sometimes trauma seems so overpowering that all we can do is continue to take care of ourselves, grown in knowledge, and wait for the moment when we realize something new. Something healing.
