At times I have needed this reminder, and by that I mean at many times! Blogging is a chance for me to use my voice to reach into the darkest places and shine some light. I know that there are lots of people out there sitting in the darkness. So this message is for you. It is a simple yet profoundly personal reminder, that you are going to be OK. It may not feel that way right now, and it may not feel that way tomorrow either.
Today I started some deeply personal work with a new Psychologist, and I was reminded of the expanse of my own experience of trauma. The work is going to shake me to my core, it is also going to call on my mammoth reserves of power and resilience. I have been in the darkest darkness, over and over again. I have come out the other side when I thought that it was not possible.
Hold onto hope. Please, please put your hand up and ask for help. Remember that you are loved, you belong here and you will come out the other side xx
