Sharing my thoughts
When you begin reading this book, you will begin to explore your feelings. You should, early in the book, know that you can make things better; Way better. Will it be easy? Probably not. Can you do it? Damned right you can. Why?
Because you have decided to.
You’ve bought this guide hoping to get some answers. The answer is that, when you have given your loss, your pain or your challenge a name.
And once you have named it, you have the key to open the door to explore it. Dig deep into the “WHY?” If the loss was a loved one, Why can’t I get this feeling resolved? Why do I feel this way? What makes me feel this way? Are there triggers that precipitate my emotions? What are they? Would my loved one want me to feel this way? If the loss was PTSD, you need to know that at that moment, it was the world that was all wrong and not you. War, murder, rape,bullying, physical or mental abuse These are not part of our so-called “normal” world.
Some of us are lucky enough not to live in a war torn country, or be exposed to sadistic psychopaths, this is not our norm. We had friends, we played games, and we went to school. Our parents loved us, we got into trouble but they were there for us. We got a job. Fell in love. Life was challenging but we had dreams. Never were we prepared to have someone point a gun in our face and threaten to kill us, or have our friends blown up in an armoured vehicle. Having to go out day in and day out, again and again, not knowing if the next time it will be our turn. We could not even fathom someone wanting to physically or mentally abuse us over and over again. Forcing themselves upon us without our permission, stomping all over our self-respect and dignity.
It’s time to take back your life. Follow the process, find your nemesis, go to your sanctuary, and find the way to getting your life back. I’m not asking you to forgive, I’m not asking you to forget. We do not have a rewind button. Everything from your birth to this moment has happened. It cannot be erased. So take control of the 3 pounds that consists of your world and rewrite the story from this moment on. If you need help, ask for it, if you need medication, take it. It doesn’t have to be forever, just long enough for you to feel that you are in control again. But because of what you are about to do, your life will change. You are learning that you are the author of your world. What you are learning now is a process that you will use for the rest of your life. I meant what I said about 30 days to 30 seconds. The more you use it, the easier it becomes to make decisions. These decisions lead you on a path you have chosen, they are not the decisions controlled by your nemesis while ruling your mind.
