Why is Healing So Hard?

Healing can be difficult, and it’s something we will all struggle with at some point in our lives. Whether it’s the aftermath of a traumatic event, the loss of someone special, or the end of a relationship, healing can be a long and challenging journey.

Why is it so hard, though???

One of the main reasons why healing is difficult is because it often requires us to confront our pain and emotions. We may have to face uncomfortable memories or feelings we’d rather forget. We may have to confront our flaws and weaknesses, go back to the past and come to terms with our mistakes. This can be a painful process, and nobody really wants to do this. I know this may be hard, but remember that moving forward and healing is necessary.

Another reason why healing is hard is that it can be a long and lonely journey. We may feel like we’re the only one going through it and that no one else can understand what we’re going through. We may feel like we’re stuck in a dark place and that we can’t find our way out. We may also feel like we’re good and have moved on only to start over from the very beginning. This can make it challenging to stay motivated and to keep going.

Healing can also be hard because it requires us to be vulnerable. We may have to open up to others and share our stories, even if it’s uncomfortable or embarrassing. We may have to ask for help, even if we’re used to being self-reliant. We may have to let go of our pride and admit that we need help. This right here is hard for a lot of people, including myself.

Healing is hard, but I believe it’s also possible. To heal, you have to:

  • Take things one step at a time
  • Allow yourself to feel your emotions.
  • Seek help and support from friends and family.
  • Be patient and kind to yourself.

I hope you find healing.
