The Long Journey Toward Healing
Your journey is not over, and you’re looking at a long road. It’s already been a long road. How do you stay inspired, knowing how big the project is and how your progress is steady, but it’s not magic or overnight?
I think that with therapy, and the 12-steps, you’re almost having to look at yourself in a mirror and see yourself for the first time. And does it take a while? Yes.
But, this is a battle. Even though I’m working on the mental, the psychological, even though I’m dieting, even though I’m exercising, I’m going to have to do all three of those for the rest of my life to be successful. So, it’s a journey for life. It’s not going to stop ever.
But I’m opening places in my heart that I’ve never opened, ever, and I think that is the key, getting the help, the psychological help. I’ve lost over 400 pounds now, and I have kept it off. That’s amazing enough, and I’ve not gone back.
The fact is, I’m healing every part of me, and I really believe, by healing every part of us, we win.
