Healing anything is a process.
A bruise healing? A process.
An emotional illness? A process.
A process is a “phenomenon marked by gradual changes”. What gradual changes do we allow in our process? What gradual changes do we not allow? We often get in the way of our own process of healing, physical and mental, by being afraid to embrace the discomfort of change. I mean, who likes the process of pulling off a Band Aid, but we heal better once we change that old bandage, don’t we?
