Ironic isn't it?
In our latter years, we realize that our Little Girl/Boy Self(ves) were "right". We realize that substitutions don't satisfy our Soul(s).
We realize that the only healing is in the unfolding of our Hearts.
We realize that events that trigger past pain in the present
Are opportunities to heal the past in the present.
But, we must be willing.
We must be willing to feel that old pain in the now
And soothe Our Souls.
This is the Only Way.
