Forgiveness is not healing.

I forgave my mother long before I went to therapy. During therapy is when I started to understand her. After therapy is when I was able to have compassion. #TherapyWorks

True story told in poetry. I am a Real and Raw Poet and Author of ”The Souls’ Poetry” my soul's true story of its’ journey to healing from the pain of childhood sexual trauma. I blog about my three year commitment to therapy and what life is like before and after healing. Decreasing the stigma of mental illness, inspiring women to tell their stories, and leading women To and Through Therapy is my mission.

  1. Hey There, so sorry for the late reply. I have a son that had a traumatic brain injury on Feb 23rd from a hit and run car accident. Your question is a good one and not at all seen as argumentative. Yes, I do believe that forgiveness did start the healing process. I could not heal though from the side effects until I did the hard work of first processing the feelings and then looking at how it is affecting my life now and work to rethink, reprogram, and change behavior that does not serve me well. I hope that answers your question. Thanks for reading my blog. I appreciate you.
