    I have been thinking about this a lot lately. I think healing is more like a cycle than a linear process. First of all the experience, whatever it is, changes the person and they can never be the same again. Sometimes we feel good and are very aware that the healing process is happening. A trigger becomes less triggering or you begin to cry less. Other times it feels as fresh and close as if you are still in the moment. You take a step back, big or little, when you experience a new trigger or a new memory surfaces.

    It’s kind of ironic that as I write this and listen to my itunes a song started playing that I had forgotten about. My heart started racing and my palms got clammy. I couldn’t open my music library fast enough to get rid of it.

    So, healing is a cycle. Hopefully a cycle that moves forward or up like a slinky but sometimes there’s a little movement back too.

    I’ve been working my way through a book called “Dear Sister.” It’s an anthology of letters from survivors of sexual violence. This has been incredibly healing for me. I just found out they have a website also. http://dearsisteranthology.com/

    I just put the book on hold at my library. Is it terribly hard to read?
