When you have back pains or a fractured leg, it’s easier to allow yourself to face it. It’s not your fault. It’s got nothing to do with you per se. Your leg broke and it hurts and all you can do is to rest it.

Pain in the heart and mind is a different story. Something inside got broken and no one can help you to put the cast on. You have to do it yourself, whether you’re ready or not.

Your therapist can walk with you.

But the work is yours to do.

Sometimes it’s just easier to head back to bed and bury your head under the blankets.

Next, a look at mindfulness, when I have the energy to continue posting.
