No time limits

“What froze me was the fact that I had absolutely no reason to move in any direction.” - Howard W. Campbell jr., Mother Night

For a long time, I thought about that quotation almost every day. However, once I accepted the healing process will occur on its own timetable, and not mine, it has been easier to adjust. One of the more frightening stories I’ve ever read was Franz Kafka’s The Trial in which the lead character is accused of a crime but is never told details about it. The lack of control can be extremely difficult to face but having accepted it has helped. It’s still difficult, and there are moments where I am overwhelmed and feel like giving up, but the more I remind myself that these are opportunities and not obstacles, has made it more bearable. Thank you for your help and support.
