To heal is to feel pain To search in darkness for light To meet oneself with understanding And be open to growth without refrain I write these words to reflect on an advancement in my recovery. My leg started to develop wanted walking actions (knee bend, hip alignment, balanced weight distribution) and it caused an intense pain in the ball of my foot. Despite the pain and precautions, I know that this is a pain for gain. Even all previous emotional healing has followed this path. Why fight against it when it offers so much?
