“Woundology” is a term coined by Caroline Myss to describe how people can become overly identified with their wounds.
Why do you think we are more comfortable staying wounded?
Why do we find more solace staying within our pain?
We often understand our pain more than we identify with wellness. Life is challenging at any given moment, but we know how to sit in our pain. It can be easier than doing the demanding work to embrace healing.
I wonder how we can step away from being defined by our wounds or stories of pain in a meaningful and sensitive manner that can allow us to honor our journey, but not be held back by it?
What if today we named just ONE strength, then proceeded to honor it. Be with this process. Embrace gratitude and awareness around it. When the process feels easier and lighter, we then choose another attribute. We keep doing this until we find ourselves releasing our wounds and the story that we held on to.
What if we stopped re-exposing ourselves to the trauma and embrace life fully for what it is in the present moment?
Maybe it is time to honor, experience and breathe through our pain by living.
