You are tired of going from one situation to the next, feeling frustrated, disillusioned, and discontent, and feeling the need to compare, envy, and control everything that you set your eyes on, including your surroundings , esteeming everybody else’s healing journey above your own.

It’s not your fault your healing journey doesn’t matter. 

But if any anything, the more you control other peoples lives, your surroundings, and healing journey, the more out of control you become, and the more your true self is trying to catch up to you.

Controlling everything and everyone isn’t working.  What else can you do?  

Your experiences and life in general as a woman who’s in pain doesn’t matter.  You have to do something. 

If you can just find the magic formula to make your healing journey appear just as easy as everybody else’s, you would be OK.

You are putting everything on the line, your family, friends, and community, seeking to find the answers to your healing journey.

If you’re worn out and lose your entire sense of self in the process, it would be worth it.  At least you would fit in, and your healing ❤️‍🩹 journey would look 👀 like everybody else’s.

The irony of the situation is that the harder you work to control every person, place, and thing around you, the more out of control you become.

Your body cannot rest from the pace of the Energizer bunny situation that you have created.  You are literally in a state of exhaustion and confusion.  If God created us for a life of freedom and abundance, this couldn’t be what it looks like.

Trying to control everything you put your eyes on, including Running after other people’s healing journeys will only make your true identity and uniquely designed healing ❤️‍🩹 journey run after you.  God created us out of love.  And in that love, he gave us freedom.  

Trying to hide from who you really are and what you were specifically designed to go through only intensifies the desire for the real you to burst forward, and come running after you, which in turn, places you in bondage.  But guess what?  You are in bondage to yourself.

God is the God of all creation and revelation and has no respect of persons.  

Your trauma matters.  Your healing matters.  Your experiences matter.  Your surroundings matter.  The same God who created and specifically designed every other woman’s healing journey is the same God who created and specifically designed yours.

Running away from your identity and healing ❤️‍🩹 journey creates an existential crisis, and in effect, a lostness.   You must know and live the truth in order to be truly free.  That is why your efforts to control and run 🏃🏿‍♀️ after everything else isn’t working.

First, you have to identify the root issues of your needing to look 👀 outside of yourself in hopes to heal instead of looking within.
