Perhaps you had a miscarriage.
Perhaps you dream of having a baby but you’ve been labeled “infertile”.
Perhaps your birthing experience was traumatic, even though you have a healthy baby.
You are told you should just “get over it”.
But how do you “get over it”? How do you just get over a life-altering trauma?
Honestly, you don’t. Don’t even try. It’s not something you GET OVER. It’s something you GO THROUGH. You can eventually heal, but it will take time to learn the lessons your life is teaching you.
Have compassion for the person who says to just get over it. Either they’ve never experienced what you’re going through or they still need more healing.
Be gentle with yourself. Learn the lessons life offers you in love. Help others.
Eventually it will look like you just got over it. But in reality, you went through it and you came out better somehow.
Best wishes on your journey.
