Healing its imperfect.

You won’t always look as good as you want.

You will make mistakes that hurt others.

You will have secret fears that make you feel weak and secret desires that horrify you.

To heal doesn’t mean you never get hurt again.

Or never make mistakes again.

Or that you are always smiling, always happy, never angry, and never scared.

To heal means when you are hurt or afraid you can respond without making matters worse.
