The things that I wish for the most out of all of them?
I wish someone had told me that depression is a disease in much the same way as diabetes - the medication is necessary to replace the chemical imbalances that the brain cannot produce
I wish someone had told me that a wound often needs to be revisited several times before the healing is complete - because the human mind can only take so much pain at one time before it either implodes or explodes
I wish someone had told me it doesn't mean that it is healed just because it's the first time I am able to face a new memory - and that the next time the memory resurfaces it can be equally as painful before final healing takes place
I wish someone had told me that doubt will constantly creep back - that knowing I didn't deserve it as an adult does not mean that my inner child will not need constant reminding and love to help her accept it
I wish someone had told me that even when everything is going perfectly well and that I am living what I have always wished for, there would "always" be a part of me, holding my breathe, waiting for everything to stripped away from me again (I don't know why that triggers but it does... a deep, penetrating sadness in my heart
