Sometimes we all have to take time alone to see the bigger picture of things around us and within us. Times of healing are very important. It’s not strange and it’s not weird to need alone time to heal. Healing is a brave thing to do. It means we respect ourselves enough to look deep inside in order to fill the cracks that life has left behind within our inner selves. Loving ourselves might mean making everyone else around us upset, but in the long run, taking time to heal will eventually make everyone else around us happier. Trauma takes time to heal. Being alone with it is brave, not weak, but brave.
Loving you from here,
