Rediscovering ourselves in our healing journeys plays a pivotal role in how we regain our strength and freedom. Oftentimes, we withdraw from things we love to do or that make us happy. Finding those activities again is an important step in our healing journeys.
After the discard (or after we leave), we are in such a thick fog that we don’t know up from down, or left from right. We don’t know where to turn or how to stay afloat. So many survivors find it difficult to even get started in their healing journeys.
I absolutely get it! For what seemed like forever, I felt stuck too. I just went through the motions. I went to work, I got home, I ate dinner, I went to bed. That was it. I found it rather difficult to put myself back out there in the world.
So how can we even begin to do things that we once loved? Won’t we despise those activities now? Won’t we feel fear in trying something new? Yes, maybe.
But it’s incredibly important to do what you love.
Because in doing what you love, you find your strengths again. You find your soul again. You rediscover what it means to live free. Did you like to paint or go hiking? Did you like to go to a craft store and find something to create? Did you like to sing? Do those things again!
There’s a quote that goes something like, “Do those things that scare you.” I feel that this is encouraging us survivors to get back out there and experience the world again. I know it’ll be scary and we’ll no doubt feel unsure of ourselves. After all, it’s what the Narcissists ingrained in our minds and hearts – to fear change, to fear the world and to fear ourselves.
The importance of doing what we love is vital to our healing journeys. These things will help us rediscover who we are and what we want out of our lives. It will help us regain our strength and freedom.
