  2. Okay so this analogy was perfect! Love love love it! Especially the point you made about doing nothing and then doing something- this is the stage where I usually get stuck. I either do too much in one go and mess up any progress I made or I never do anything and never move on. Great post!

    Thank you for sharing this! I think we are so used to ignoring what is hurting or has hurt us that we try to rush the process. Sometimes in that rushing, we miss out on important things…like true authentic healing. I can honestly say as I’ve grown older, I’m giving myself time to heal no matter if it is physical, emotional, mental,etc

    This is one of the best blogs I have read recently. As a psych major, LOVE how you acknowledged the necessity of sitting in grief/pain and reflecting on it. Societally, we are constantly conditioned to deflect negativity at whatever cost, even if it is detrimental. Taking the time to acknowledge pain is a huuuuge step in mindfulness. 2) this really is getting the wheels turning for me regarding some things I have been trying to sort through. You framed this excellently, and the comparison was perfect.

    Absolutely beautiful! I agree. We try to get a quick fix and end up hurting ourselves even more. Also, actually admitting you’re hurting is a HUGE step to HEALING that people seem to miss. So necessary!

    I am so the throw yourself into something so that it consumes you and you don’t have time to deal person. I’ve done it again and again for various reasons. Like clockwork, I always have to deal with my emotions on the tail end then I’m mad at myself for not acknowledging my issue earlier. I’m also completely on board with being ok with having regrets. Some things you just wish you never did. I appreciate having the experience to shape my future actions. Very good post Tiff!

      This is why you are my Capricorn sister, we love to just keep it moving and not acknowledge. I think it’s our way of being “strong”. Thanks for reading!
