Healing isn't linear, but pep talks are free.
Thanks for reading. Connie on Ko-fi
[3-panel comic of a cartoon girl with a braid, wearing a t-shirt with W.I.P. on it. Panel 1: She is looking into a mirror with a flat expression. Caption reads, "Healing isn't linear." Panel 2: She is at her desk with a post-it pad, pen, and tea mug, putting a bright post-it note on her head. Panel 3: Hands, folded in front of her, she patiently waits. Caption reads, "But pep talks are free." The post-it note on her forehead says, "You'll get there." (WIP = work in progress) Webcomic strip by Connie Sun, cartoonconnie, 2022.]
You so often post something like today that is just what I needed to hear. Thank youy.
So true! And just like traumas, healing is individualised. What may work quickly for one person takes years/decades for another--or may not work at all.
I'm working on a new type of quilting project. It was being quite a struggle until I realised that it's okay to jettison certain "norms". No one is going to see this quilt but me, and maybe a friend or two. It doesn't have to be "by the book" if it works. And that was a strangely healing realisation.
