The question most moms ask: "Why can’t I just get over it?" vs. what I hear…
Sounds like: "I know they're tired of hearing about it and want me to stop thinking about it- but I'm still dealing with it."
I hear you: Comparing your tolerance.
Sounds like: "I feel like I'm not doing enough or deserving of more time for my needs."
I hear you: Comparing your capacity.
Sounds like: "I Feel like a failure because I keep making mistakes when I should “know better”.
I hear you: Comparing your process.
I’ve found healing to be synonymous with grieving. They are both highly individualized and have no correct way to experience them. Grieving & healing look and feel different for each person. Both are as unique as the person experiencing it.
