Healing Ain't Pretty

Originally published March 10th, 2023.

Healing ain’t pretty.

It forces us to take an honest look at where we’ve been and where we wish to go and adjust our behavior accordingly.

It means building fences and leaving strategically placed doorways.

Healing ain’t pretty.

It calls us to be the villain- so we can be the hero of our own story.

With each wound we lick, another appears begging us to hear its story.

Healing ain’t pretty.

It’s maddening. Life changing.

It challenges us to ask, “who is this person looking back at me?”

Healing ain’t pretty.

It’s affirming.

It’s necessary.

But it ain’t pretty.
