We all need healing, whether it be physical, emotional, spiritual. I've come to realize that there are things I really need to face in my life. Things from the past that make me see myself as I am now- things that hold me back and only hurt me... this shouldn't be.
I am a daughter of God- deeply loved and looked after. No one can judge me but my God. I need to fully accept that. As if this world can offer real truth, why do I listen? I should push forward and strive in the desires and talents my Lord has given me. Why look back? Why look around? Just go. Run full force ahead.
