We are all wounded in some way. It may be something that was taken from us or something that was never allowed to grow. Either way I believe it is what we are here to learn and overcome.
That is why I am so grateful for every circumstance in my life, even the most painful. Each and every event has given me a better understanding of myself and helped me to discover who I was meant to be.
Letting yourself heal from a wound is not for the faint of heart. You have to pull back the bandage and examine the injury. Once you gauge the true nature of the condition then and only then can you begin the recovery.
