Sometimes we suppress our emotions, avoid sensitive topics, and delay our healing while operating on the falsehood that things will magically work themselves out. Truth is, you will continue to repeat the same story until you heal from your past traumas. But that will require you to put in work Sis.
Remember watching Love & Hip Hop and the same story line repeated for multiple sessions? For example, Mimi is in an entanglement and Stevie is being Steebie. Don’t let that be you. Don’t be a played out story line that everyone, including the actress, is tired of portraying.
A common excuse that is more lame than a movie on Hallmark is:
“I have too much going on right now to deal with things from the past. I would rather wait until I have some free time.”
Wouldn’t it be great if it worked that way? Well I am here to knock some sense into you. If you do not make time to heal, you will be forced to heal and it will not be a pretty process.
Here are five reasons why you should cut the shit and heal from the barriers that are standing in the way of your happiness.
- Your heart is tired of being broken
- Your love life can’t take another tragic ending
- Your dreams are ready to come true
- Your bank account is tired of suffering
- Your mind is tired of you trying to convince yourself that things are good
If these reasons aren’t enough to send you scurrying to purchase a journal and start reflecting, book an appointment with a therapist, take a spiritual bath, light some sage, or try one of our self therapy resources on our Empower Portal; then Sis you need an Iyanla Vanzant intervention.
We are rooting for you as always!
