Y4 – Day 337 – Steps 2-4

  • 2. Reach out and speak to people you trust. Commiserate, vent and sob with good friends. Seek an experienced professional therapist or an established group of survivors. Find a safe place to express your feelings without judgment or limits.
  • 3. Write about your most destructive, ugly thoughts and throw away your ranting into little tiny pieces or burn it. Punch a pillow. Cry in the shower or the rain. Shout, scream and rave with wild abandon.
  • 4. Open, don’t shut down. Be willing to allow the wonder of life to enter again, gently and without a trace of guilt. Invite the light to shine on your darkness. Use prayer. Release a chuckle. Crack a smile. Just a smidgen to start.
