Trauma and pain
Both take their toll in different ways
I am going through some personal suffering right now, and am too fragile to write. But I still read. Many stories.
I don’t always announce my interaction but it’s there and in a week or so, I will be writing again.
Using pain as a furnace.
Visceral pain 💔 which breaks your heart, cowers your body, dims your eyes in a bright light.
Searching for meaning in pain
It’s back to reading Victor Frankl Man’s Search For Meaning, and to use these weeks as a furnace, for future writing.
Do we cry enough? No, we do not.
We are far too constrained by wanting to appear "in control", not "too emotional", not "hysterical".
Thank you to my followers and many readers.
Keep reading even when you feel you cannot write. You will find comfort here.
This is my time to develop resilience — in the face of trauma and pain.
