Pain refuses choice.

While you can’t relive the past, you can choose to heal from the pain of the past.

Little by little, you can let down those defenses.

Once helped you survive but are actually hurting you now.

You can learn new life skills so you can begin to accept and internalize that it is truly possible for you to be imperfect and still be lovable; make mistakes and still be forgiven; and feel and express your feelings openly, honestly, safely.
