We all hurt, and it sucks, who wants to hurt? For me, the response to ourselves when we hurt is crucial to our recovery. It is often tempting and culturally endorsed to blame and criticise one’s self for the hurt we experience.
To honour ourselves fully we must recognise that we actually have the answers to our own questions within us. We simply need to take the time to sit with the questions or issues and give ourselves the space to find within us what we need to know.
