Metamorphosis is the mantra of the day!
Metamorphosis is the opposite of dissociation. It is the opposite of compromise, numbness, sacrifice, confusion and self-blame.
Metamorphosis is transformation where the frightened, distrustful child becomes a confident adult, capable of active participation in life and relationships.
We don’t have control over everything but we CAN determine our own mindset, choices, and trajectory in life.
We CAN decide whether or not to live in truth or denial.
We CAN look at our own history and claim it as truth and cast aside the pretense and lies that we had formerly been forced to live.
We CAN separate ourselves from our abusers and hold them accountable for their actions, freeing ourselves from the blame that had wrongfully been placed upon us.
We CAN say: look at the transformations I have endured, look at the pain I still carry, and see my strength.
We CAN (and will) find the happiness and satisfaction we deserve.
