At some point in our lives we’ve all faced, fought, conquered and moved over situations that stretched us to our limits and tested our ability to withstand any amount of pressure, hurt and disappointment.
While assuming we emerged victorious, I feel the dynamic process of ‘facing it’ is the simplest. The harder part is to live with ourselves and the battered remains of what broke us down in the first place.
Can someone completely erase those punishingly harsh memories although they’re long gone? If those wounds are teased enough can they still arise out of ashes? Can we become the same person we were before?
