HEALING

NOT A SPECTATOR SPORT I spent so much of my life pointing my finger at others until I realized that when I did, three fingers were pointing back at me. It was then I began to heal. I allowed my tears to water my soul, and I realized that the SH*T of my life could become the fertilizer that will grow a stronger me than I started with… some things, I’ve come to understand, are done FOR us not TO us. Healing is not a spectator sport. ∎
