In all matters of life, we must ask ourselves whether what we are engaged in is in balance, whether it is serving us or taking life away from us. I decided to take a break from facebook recently, I realized that what I was seeking wasn’t there, though it is a good socializing platform, it wasn’t what I needed, not right now at least. I found myself mindlessly just scrolling through comments, and posts and nothing there fulfilled my deeper need for genuine connection.
It has been a challenge in my life to share my feelings with others for many reasons, I think part of the reason is generational trauma. The majority of the women in my family, including ancestors, have lived countless traumas of all sorts-if you are of the sensitive nature or are woman, I believe you understand what that means, the statistics don’t lie. I find myself breaking free from many of the limitations that I grew up with, limitations from family, and yet as I break free from some, I find others hidden behind those layers.
I have a better relationship with myself today than I did ten years ago, because of this, and many other reasons, I remain positive on my path to healing.
