I am in pain
This can be physical or emotional pain and sometimes you can experience both, as one often affects the other. Pain is a way of our bodies telling us something needs change.
The good news is that when there is positive change in one area then often the other area where you are experiencing pain will also begin to improve.
Change is constant and will come.
Remember you are a whole being and there is a way forward.
Find support that includes all of these aspects of you for the most effective support.
Try to be kinder to yourself, take things one moment at a time, one day at a time, one week at a time.
"Am I doing something wrong?"
You are not doing anything wrong. There is no competition, perfect life or ideal person. It is OK not to be OK and everyone gets stuck at some point. Challenges happen to everyone, physical, emotional or both.
Take a moment to STOP and BREATH
Sometimes you just need a moment or to find someone to help you realise that it’s a natural part of life and notice that you have everything you need to move forward in a way that works for you.
