There is no amount you must suffer.

In order to have permission to heal.

If you have pain, you deserve to heal.

If you have anger or guilt from the past, you deserve to heal.

If you are protecting yourself from past pain in ways that are causing you, even more, pain in the present, you deserve to heal.

Yes, there will always be a greater horror story.

But your loss is not negated by someone else’s.

You deserve to heal.
