To call healing a "path" almost seems like a cruel joke. When we suffer deep emotional damage, especially over a long period of time, healing can feel more like being lost in a wild frontier.
You'll get snagged in thorny bushes. You lose your footing and scrape your knees on jagged rock faces. You'll travel for days, weeks, even months only to find you've circled back to where you started. The work of healing isn't for the faint of heart, but the alternative— to remain in pain, cynical and jaded to the world— seems a worse punishment, if not an easier one to deal with. But a life lived in a cynical suit of armor isn't a life anyone can fall in love with living.
The thing is, healing isn't about returning to who we once were. That person is long gone. Healing is about transmuting the trauma into wisdom, and it can be a long and painful process. Sometimes, it seems we'll never be whole again. Embrace this stripped down version of yourself, love them gently and unconditionally, and listen to what they have to say. This is you without facades and defenses. If you can love and take care of yourself here, there will come a day when you realize you don't feel so lost anymore. The wilderness has thinned out and you can see a horizon outside of it. You'll realize just how far you've come, and you will wear your scars and your wisdom like jewels.

Current offseason weight 190-195lbs. Staying pretty lean this offseason but the workouts have definitely suffered with the added stress on the body from hockey. 😭
Can't wait to start training full tilt though once the seasons over!💪🏼😎 295 ♡ 10 ✍
