Now that I have your attention, let’s talk about the fact that there are things that make us more alike than unalike. For instance, fighting our battles in silence.
I recently read an article entitled “Why do African Americans suffer in silence” and it struck a nerve. We all have secrets, we have all done things that we aren't proud of. I have battled, perhaps still battling, the issues that make me who I am. There have been familial and environmental issues exposed to me during my childhood, poor decision making and unfortunate circumstances. These issues could scar anyone. I’ve held it all in, yet blocked them out, I guess I suppressed them. This is a dangerous method of overcoming battles, its just another way to stumble over them.
So, what changed it for me? I believed in a higher power (for me, God) and praying, but I started weekly visits to my therapist. How in the world do you overcome obstacles without proper guidance? I not only tapped into my faith from the God of the universe, but I got direction from someone on the outside looking in, someone who could be objective. You will need someone to help you find and make peace with your past so it no longer impacts your present and future. They will help you understand what you’re going through while you are going through it without judging you. I will let this pill absorb in your system for now. Until next time...XO.
