Day one of The 25 Days of Healing was to admit that you have you something to heal from. I’m pretty sure I have more than one area of growth to come out of my Daddy Issues. I chose to focus on my Trust Issues. I had to acknowledge that I have trust issues. Upon admitting to having these trust issues I had to make a choice, and decide it was more important to heal than it was to have more content. Once I decided I was ready to heal I had to be honest about the pain I was experiencing and how I was allowing it to manifest itself in my life. I realized that I was occasionally projecting these patterns of pain and distrust onto others. Once upon a time writing was my greatest outlet, until I realized that I trusted pen and paper more than human interaction. I decided to evaluate how these trust issues were effecting me, and visualize what my life would look like without these trust issues. In order to get to this place I visualized, I have to confront the people who have contributed to my pain, and stop myself from participating in that pain. Holding on to some of those trust issues has prevented me from reaching that healed place. I won’t be able to move on without practicing forgiveness. Forgiveness doesn’t mean allowing folk the opportunity to continuously cause me the same kind of pain.
