Dear Young MamaBear,
Being you can be really hard. It can mean that a lot of hurtful things may come up from your past, when you start thinking about who you are and how you got to where you are today. It can mean that you will have to process a lot of what makes you who you are. You might discover some things about yourself that you don’t like. That can be a good thing if you let it be. It can be a good time to talk to someone safe-a spouse, a parent, a partner, a good friend, a professional counselor if it’s too much to even think about by yourself.
If even talking out loud to someone is too much to handle, then try journaling to start with. Writing to yourself. You can discover a lot about yourself just by writing down what you are really thinking. Process the things that you’ve been holding onto, deep in your being, way down in the corners of yourself where it can’t be found by anyone, until you decide it’s time.
Don't edit your thoughts, just write and let it flow. It doesn't have to start out extreme or intense. Just write what you're thinking and why and what you're feeling. Once you've started letting it flow then that should lead to deeper and more personal thoughts that will sometimes surprise you.
Processing with someone safe is a really important part of letting yourself be you. You can start to work through things, one at a time, so that you can realize that you are not just that person anymore. Every day you are changing, becoming a little more of who you want to be, and moving forward. If you are moving forward, toward who you want to be, then you aren’t stuck. You aren’t staying still or moving backwards, so you are already becoming who you want to be. Processing with someone safe will help you start to heal and grow even more.
I hope you will continue to join me on this journey!
