Myth of recovering from trauma.

You can’t go back.

You can’t make things ‘go back’ the way they were.

You are not the same person as before your traumatic events happened. Through the process of trying to recover, I think we fool ourselves and try so hard to put things back the way that they were before.

I am not the woman that I was six months, a year, two years, or three years ago. I have changed. I have learned and adapted in that time. And yet, I was still trying to go backward….

Its ok to change. And in learning that, I am teaching my girls that change is ok. It isn’t pretty. Its rarely fun. But staying the same person I have always been is a nightmare that I do not want to live.
