Healing- In #medicine, theres a procedure known as incision and drainage (I&D). In which an infected wound is cut and essentially squeezed. It can be extremely painful. But necessary. To remove the content which is responsible for the #infection, the pain, the discomfort. It allows the area infected to rid of the things perventing growth of new, healthy cells and tissues. I sit and reflect about the state of our own selves and the way in which we as human beings heal. Be it from #emotional, mental, physical, or psychological traumatic experiences.
We need more than just time. #Time is not enough for healing. Time often increases the infection causing the pains. Time can kill just as it can cure. #Healing and recovery require uncomfortable things, like self honesty. Brutal self honesty. It requires looking straight into the pus and gore of the source of pain, making the incision and cleaning it out. For a newer and healthier you, its necessary. If that means you be real and cry, then cry. Cry to #God. Cry to those you love and trust. Cry to yourself. If it means you talk about it, then you talk. Dont bottle anything. It only makes things more toxic. Only after the immense pain and discomfort can we begin to experience and appreciate the relief.
