Sometimes you are weak. Pain — be it emotional, physical, or spiritual — can be debilitating. Suffering can take an enormous toll on us.
There can be weakness for a season.
However, that sort of weakness, the type that is due to injury or trauma, does not make you a weak person. It just makes you a human person who is suffering for a season.
I’ve never had chemo, but I imagine therapy can be somewhat like it. You feel like throwing up a lot. You hope it kills the trauma before it kills you. You hope you survive it and the trauma. You hope it brings healing so that what you are enduring is worth it in the end.
It gets worse before it gets better.
I was blessed with a “tribe” who helped me through my painful healing process, and I sent them this message today:
Thank you. The words are so inadequate.
I explain where I’m going on my other blog.
