Release

Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on.

Eckhart Tolle

Today, encouragement to let go.

Surviving Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA) is a triumph! Yet, years later I feel my jaw clench and my shoulder muscles tighten as I brace for a blow to my sense of safety.

As recovery continues, I am better able to notice when I have outsized reactions to situations and am learning to release my need for control. I have a new skill available to me. I can walk away. I can let go. I can release what weighs me down and enjoy a lightness I never imagined possible when I was a child living through the betrayal of CSA. I can soar like a heron gliding above the water.

  • What will you let go of today to lighten the burdens of surviving CSA?
  • How will you release tension?
