Moments and Memory-making

The most painful moments of my life have occurred in the last few years. So painful that they have reconnected me to my deepest childhood difficulties.

Perhaps it is all for the greater good. I pray that I might use the invitation of my current suffering to finally process buried suffering once and for all.

It isn't a conscious choice, but I've wondered lately... Am I avoiding making new memories and moments because I'm afraid that they will be painful? Perhaps I am. This awareness provides a pathway to change and freedom.

When it is time I will be making moments and memories with more joy than ever. I want this to be soon, but I am learning that patience is the way forward.

Where are you shying away from life because you've been hurt?
