“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”-Winston Churchill
I have been dealing with a very traumatic incident that happened this past weekend. I experienced a violation of trust physically and emotionally, I allowed someone who I trusted too close to me and things went bad. It has been really draining dealing with the emotions that involve betrayal and violation. There are some really tough lessons in this incident for both parties. I feel like I’m caught in the crossfire of revealing the truth that involves this individual in a leadership position. Some people may hate me, others may understand, either way it’s ugly.
Due to past experience I knew that I could not keep it a secret because it would otherwise eat me up inside into depression. One lesson that I learned from a healer yesterday was that what happened wasn’t my fault-basically don’t take it personally. I will write with more clarity once I feel better, for now I am still releasing and healing this hurt, to be continued….
