Truth telling is the first and the LAST step to healing your trauma.
The first step in the reconciliation process is truth. If we hope to reconcile our path and move forward with any sense of hope, we must begin by telling the truth of our shared history. Unfortunately, our trauma prevents that truth telling. We’re afraid of what might happen when we do. We fear others reactions and we fear our own grief response.
But, without this opening there can be no authentic unification between each other and with God. We will continue to feel betrayed by Him and others – and ultimately, by ourselves.
