Healing is a Choice

I am writing several posts about acceptance…accepting myself, my diagnosis, my challenges.  Along the way I noticed in my reading about acceptance that some people interpret acceptance as staying the way they are.  I don’t believe this.  I accept where I am but that doesn’t mean I plan to stay that way.  I believe strongly in truthful viewing myself and my situation and accepting this is where I am.  Now, where do I go from here.  I learned somewhere that we are either growing or dying.  I know some people that buried themselves long before they died.  I want to keep growing.  I believe that I am far more capable than what I was diagnosed with.  I am not my PTSD.  I am a survivor that used PTSD to get through some terrible years but I am learning to live now and those tools are hampering me from growing how I want to grow.  I believe acceptance is the first step because I had to accept how messed up I was before I was willing to tackle cleaning up my mess.  Cheering for every one of you that is struggling to move forward no matter how small the baby steps.  I moved through many years 5 minutes at a time.  I learned I can do anything for 5 minutes.  I accepted the challenge to grow and thrive.
