This feels especially true for chronic conditions right? Things we carry for a long time if not a lifetime. The healing can relate to trauma so long ago & buried deep - it metastasises. The challenge is how to unravel all that and knowing it isn't enough... While we love a pill to fix us (or a short course thank you very much).. the incremental shifts of healing take time and patience and some effort from us. I think the trick is to notice the shifts - let them be the reward to keep going. All too often we sink back into helplessness.. And if our comfort zone is discomfort we might just stay there.
