Healing comes from taking responsibility. From digging deep within to find the courage one needs to heal oneself. And it’s not easy. Mental and emotional well being, our thoughts, our feelings and resulting actions create our reality thus expediting or slowing down our healing process whether internal or external because at the end of the day, the root cause is always within.
