When will I stop thinking about it? When will I be able to see something and it not bring flashbacks? just when?
How will I get over it? How will I be able to move on? just how?
Likely never. Sorry to tell you but depending on the depth of the pain, it may be never. So why not instead of asking yourself these questions over and over; why not be okay with reminding yourself that YOU are a human and that YOU will heal, in your own way, in your own time. And maybe healing isn’t getting amnesia over what happened, maybe healing is just being okay with it.
I just want you to know that no one should tell you how to heal… maybe staying in the “victim” role is yours, maybe hurting others in the same way is a way, maybe keeping it to yourself is healing. We should respect you enough to understand that if that is your way, it’s your way. There is not one way to heal. There is no RIGHT way to heal.
There is a saying “When you can tell your story and it doesn’t make you cry, you know you have healed”. Is this true? Maybe it is, for YOU.
